I was just wondering what do you think zebras are? Black with white stripes or white with black stripes?

For those of you who have never seen a zebra:

I read somewhere last year that they were really black with white stripes.



Not what I read last year but read it anyway.

I voted black with white stripes, go to Discovery's website, or Animal PLanet or national Geographic, or your local ZOo and ask, then post your amazing findings back here.

Under the black light, the striped pattern vanishes and bright fluorescent flowers appear on zebras.

Don't invite a zebra to your black light party, though. :cool: They *bogart*...'nuff said.

It might be because of what your smoking at your parties that makes it look like that Zoomdog.:rolleyes:

...Aren't you the one who sees pink and purple polka-dot zebras?

Zebras are generally thought to have white coats with black (sometimes brown) stripes. That's because if you look at most zebras, the stripes end on their bellies and toward the insides of the legs, and the rest is all white. But as it turns out, zebras have black skin underneath their hair. So it kind of depends on how you look at it! I say black with white stripes. =)

i say white with black stripes

the belly and nose area is white which makes me think that without the stripes it would be white all over.

then again the maine is black with white stripes.. weird eh?

08-20-2003, 10:02 AM
their pattern is white with black stripes, so that is what i say:cool:

08-20-2003, 10:05 AM
I'm sticking to the pink and purple scheme.

This to me suggests that the zebra's striped coloration is strongly associated with the 'old dawg artists' of the early twentieth century--the Dadaists. I support this notion by pointing out that a zebra's striking coat is absolutely useless as camoflauge (which invalidates its likelihood as a product of evolution); this means that only a human artist could have repainted the zebra in this absurd fashion. To deduce the intentions of the original dada zebra artist, we should consider the symbology implied by the intermingling of black and white in this striped pattern. Good and evil, up and down, yes and no can be seen on the zebra, interpenetrating and alternating randomly as they so often do in real life. Add to this the obvious punctuation of putting this on a horse that isn't really a horse...well. To me at least, the culprit is revealed.

I can interrelate absolutely anything. :max:

I've thought long and hard about this but I have to say Yoda.

well i think you get what the question is, what color are the stripes the dark color (black/brown) or the light color (white)?

08-22-2003, 03:35 AM
Yoda says..vote YODA because Yoda does not understand the logic of making a thread about zebras.:confused:

08-22-2003, 08:01 AM
I think we've established that they're white and they've got black srtipes.

Still voted Yoda though :p

Yes. Absolutely, you should believe everything you see on teevee.

Brown is not an option.
