The zebra's stripes are not camouflage but a confusing optical illusion to confuse predators. external link

The only Zebra external link we saw was this one, who hadn't been raised with other zebras so instead hung out with a group of Roan antelope. The rest of the Safari West zebras had found a "private" place on the property that was not visible from tour cars. As a consequence those other Zebra were rarely seen.

A beautiful Zebra external link with gorgeous long lashes. I would love to see Zebras in California fields alongside the horses, sheep and cows. We have Ostriches and Llamas, why not Zebras?

The well muscled head of a zebra reminds me of a ballerina on her toes. external link
