Many people know them for their iconic stripes and the never ending riddle about them being black with white stripes, or white with black stripes. A group of zebras is called a 'dazzle'.

The purpose of the special fur colouring of the Zebra has so far not been unequivocally clarified. The black and white stripe colouring is only partially suitable as a camouflage colour.
