Hahaha.. it's my understanding that lions or some animals are colorblind and are confused by the stripes.. It makes it hard for them to distinguish individual zebras when they're in a herd. :dontknow:

follow-up.. from wikipedia

believe that the stripes act as a camouflage mechanism. This is accomplished in several ways. First, the vertical striping helps the zebra hide in grass. At first glance, this may seem absurd considering that grass is neither white nor black, but it makes sense because the zebra's main predator, the lion, is color blind. A zebra standing still in tall grass may not be noticed at all by a lion. However, zebras are herd animals and do not usually travel alone, so the second way the stripes help in camouflage is by confusing the lion a number of zebras standing or moving close together may appear as one large animal, making it more difficult for the lion to pick out any single zebra to attack.[2]

Stripes are also believed to play a role in social interactions, with slight variations of the pattern allowing the animals to distinguish between individuals.

A more recent theory, supported by experiment, posits that the disruptive coloration is also an effective means of confusing the visual system of the blood-sucking tsetse fly.[citation needed] Alternative theories include that the stripes coincide with fat patterning beneath the skin, serving as a thermoregulatory mechanism for the zebra, and that wounds sustained disrupt the striping pattern to clearly indicate the fitness of the animal to potential mates.


I watch too much National Geographic and discovery! :laughing6
