Black & white

Zebras are a beautiful species, with their stunning black and white stripes.

There are many theories for the colouring, the most postured one being that it enables the individuals to gather together and “dazzle” a predator to the point of confusion where they have difficulty isolating a particular individual as potential prey.  Another one is that it helps with discouraging biting flies and thermal regulation.

So is the zebra black with white stripes OR white with black stripes?
