The Role of Zebra Stripes
When you think about a zebra, the first thing that comes to mind is its distinctive white and black striped pattern. Evidently, the skin underneath the coat of a zebra is black. That means that a zebra is black with white stripes instead of having both white and black stripes. In addition to its aesthetic beauty, these patterns serve various functional purposes.
Firstly, no two zebra stripe patterns are alike. Therefore, this differentiation is a way to tell one zebra apart from another. Indeed, when a foal is born, the mother is left to learn to recognise it by sight, smell, and sound.
Secondly, zebra stripes act as camouflage in various ways. The vertical stripe pattern resembles tall grass. Although the colour does not blend in with the grass, zebras merge perfectly with the scenery. This is especially the case to colour blind predators like lions. It is even more evident when they are stationary.
Moreover, the black and white zebra stripe pattern forms a discolouration that helps break up their body outline. Therefore, a small herd of zebras may appear like one large animal. This is particularly advantageous in helping zebras to deter predator attacks.
Symbolically, zebras impart deep wisdom to those who consider the world as black or white. Every aspect of life requires balance, and therefore the stripes represent a blending of opposites. Indeed, the opposite energies of yin and yang bring clarity and harmony.
