Cool! I always wondered why on earth they'd be designed that way. My life is complete! hah
=) I didn't know either. Cool stuff.
i like that info about zebras! they are so interesting to me!
Glad you like. I think they're pretty cool, too. :)
Cool. And to prove I'm a geek the first thought after reading was, "Well, you would have to wonder how such an trait would be selected for and fixed in to a population." God, school really has melted my mind!!!!
I was wondering that too. Like how cool is nature, yo?
That Little Pony thang fucking my shit up!
Good fucked up shit, I hope? ;)
I remember reading about the ever-moving group of stripes, but I didn't know that lions were colorblind. Are other cat species also colorblind?
I bet a quick google would find the answer. :)
Umm... Mmm, like tasty? *blink*
I think it would be terribly hot to be all black. What if a zebra lost his stripes? Would he pass out from the heat, or is that not how it works? I thought about not posting this, because it might mistakenly lead to thoughts of me as racist. But I realized that that's just me thinking about it too much, which is not something I want to perpetuate in myself. It occurs to me that there are both animals that are a sturday black and a nebulously tawny brown that nears the pigmentation of zebras (but is that only for skin?). I read a book to a kid where the mostly black zebras were at odds with the mostly white zebras, but they made up in the end, and I thought this is way too overt to not make me squeamish because the resolution was too shazy, and there's no such thing as a white horse, they're actually grey according to horse scientists, whatever kind of career that is, so what color really is a zebra's stripes?
I've written too much and am in need of an editor.
oh, and I had a colorblind moment today. roar!
Awwww, I love zebras; they've always been one of my favorite animals. And when all the animal print clothes started getting popular, I picked zebra for mine, so I've got some neat zebra print clothes, too. I'm a sucker for black and white animals... :)
Zebra's are cool. lol.
Yes! The 80's! :)
My stepmom has a zebra skin up on her wall. Actually, she and my dad have pretty much decorated the whole place with skins and antlers. The floor rug is a buffalo with the head still attached. The ears on that thing are freaky.
Oh, and speaking of My Little Ponies:http://youtube.com/watch?v=7dDeS3nv3SQ
That makes me really sad.
And I'll favorite place it. I've got dial up currently.
That video was SO great
I <3 the 80's with a passion.
They seem to get some kind of pleasure from looking at stripes.
*snicker* Kinky zebra sex.
