Looks like an OB zebra, seems to be a holding female at that.

Thanks, but if she was holding, would I need a male to complete the process?

If she's holding, the process has already been completed. What she needs is privacy until it's time to release the fry.

Holding females means they already spawned, with or without a male present. If they are fertile it takes around 3 weeks before the female releases the fry, if they are infertile she will spit them out after a week or so.
