Biologists say Zebras' stripes are a form of camoflage called "motion dazzle." When a herd moves together, their stripes blur the boundaries between individuals, so they appear to one large animal. This is believed to confuse predators & make it harder to pick out a single animal to attack, improving their chance of survival.
