Animal of the day – 02/27/2014 – The Zebra

The animal of the day is the Zebra. (Did you know: There are a couple subspecies of Zebras , but we’re just gonna do the general striped horsie that we all know and love. Those wonderful patterns on zebras are as unique as fingerprints on humans, and when they’re in a big group all those stripes help confuse their predators  making it hard to pick one out in a chase!

Here’s something CRAZY though! As you move from North Africa to South Africa, Zebra stripes of go from thinner to thicker! WHAT?

No one knows why. Yup. Consider your mind blown.
