Grevy’s Zebra (Equus grevyi)

Grevy's Zebra (Equus grevyi)_2

Every few months another study comes out that finds that zebra stripes are not useful for camouflage, and that therefore, Darwin and Wallace were wrong.

Fewer are the studies that propose what the stripes are actually used for, though most guesses seem to revolve around cooling (stripes creating convention currents), insect repellent (somehow messing with the UV light that biting bugs see), and the fact that black and white stripes are rockin’ cool.

I would, however, like to propose an alternative. My guess is that zebras just really like messing with humans.
