How to make this sound

alt="Zebra Z sound">

is a voiced consonant sound. You can make the /Zebra Z sound/ sound by voicing the /Snake -S- sound/ sound. It is made with the teeth gently closed or almost close together. The lips are open so that the teeth can be seen. The tongue should be placed just behind the place where the top teeth meet the bottom teeth leaving a small gap to allow the sound to vibrate. A little bit of air is then pushed between the top and bottom teeth while voicing the sound
