The Zebra is a member of the horse family, native to central, eastern and southern Africa. They are best known for their distinctive black and white stripes, which act as a camouflage mechanism. The vertical striping helps the zebra hide in grass, especially against the lion, which is color blind. The stripes may help to confuse predators - a number of zebras close together may appear as one large animal, making it more difficult to pick out any single zebra to attack.
