They say that to describe a zebra to someone that’s never seen one before, you just tell them that it’s a horse with stripes.
Which works fine, if they’ve seen a horse before. But think about this: What if a horse is actually a zebra. Without stripes.
Who came first? We don’t know! But for the experiment described above, it depends on where you’re from. It’s a question of perspective.
THINK ABOUT THAT!
Don’t sweat the small stuff. About Zebras or life
It’s also worth noting that zebras don’t get cancer. They say it’s because when the lion comes through and eats one of their friends or relatives, it only takes a minute or two before the rest of the living are standing around, eating grass like nothing happened.
In other words, they don’t SWEAT THE SMALL STUFF! And then they don’t get cancer.
Think about that for a minute.
(It could also be because they eat grass and not grains. Because they spend lots of time outside. Because they don’t use social media. They don’t drink chlorinated water. Who really knows!)
Maybe it’s the camouflage?
Some have also argued that they have stripes because it makes them camouflaged. And that it proves that evolution is real. But the people that say that are WRONG! Zebras and their high-contrast stripes stand out like sore thumbs. They might have the worst camouflage of any living creature. And yet there they are. Eating grass and not getting cancer. Generation after generation. Maybe the stripes just make them sexy, to zebras of the opposite sex. I don’t know which zebra gender is more likely to make the first move. The animal kingdom is all over the place when it comes to romance.
