Why does the zebra have stripes?

Because they don't want to be spotted!

Jokes aside, scientists have been debating the evolutionary reason behind the zebra's stripes for over a century. Could it be a) courtship b) camouflage c) a natural way to cool off d) fly repellent?

Take a bow if you answered D!

Latest research shows that the geographic range of zebras and other striped species overlap nicely with the range of bloodsucking flies. Biologists who buy into this hypothesis say that striped animals have an evolutionary advantage as they wouldn't suffer from health issues associated with bug bites.

For those skeptics who answered B, I would suggest you watch The Big Cat Diary!
