    there are

    Is the sentence right?

    There are zebras in the zoo.

    Don't we have to add numbers or some, many... before the noun zebras?

    Is it fine not to add words(numbers, some, many...)? Isn't is a must?

    Thank you

    No, we don't need a number or "some" or "many". Consider: Q. "What animals are there in the zoo?" A. "There are zebras, elephants, lions and monkeys in the zoo."
