Believe it or not there once was a time, when Zebras were green blue orange and lime.
There were frequent arguments concerning the palette. So one day the elder Zebras voted by ballot.
They decided to call all the colors together. Then suddenly the sky turned to inclement weather.
The rain poured down on them with no end. The zebra's colors ran and they began to blend!
The result of the blending was a starteling sight. All the colors had blended into black and white.
Did you know?
Zebra's travel in herds and when they are standing closely together it is very difficult to distinguish between individuals. It is thought that the zebra's stripes confuse predators allowing the herd more time for escape.
