Today in Safari School, we were wondering why Zebras evolved to get their stripes so we did a bit of research and were fascinated by the result. Read on to find out. 🦓 . . . Scientists have suggested dozens of ideas to explain why zebras evolved stripes. Some say the BOLD patterns confuse their predators, or that they keep the animals cool. 😎 But all of these ideas have been disproved or lack strong evidence. . . . Scientists argued that zebras evolved the stripes to avoid INSECTS, which often carry fatal diseases. . . . Researchers recorded 3 captive zebras and 9 horses in adjacent fields. They also covered the horses with three different rugs, one black, one white, and one striped much like a zebra. . . . From afar, the zebra stripes did not deter flies; both zebras and domestic horses experienced the same rate of circling flies. BUT a close analysis of the flies’ final approach to the striped animals revealed the insects failed to slow down, and instead flew over the stripes or bumped into them. . . . Only 5 flies landed on the horses dressed in zebra rugs during a 30-minute period, whereas more than 60 touched down on those in the solid black and solid white rugs in the same amount of time. The flies attacked all the horses’ uncovered heads at the same rate. . . . It seems the stripes affect the insects at a very close range, and they suggest zebra-striped rugs may be a simple way to protect domestic horses from biting flies. . . . I wonder if the stripes on this zebra are confusing the nearby flies. . . . #zebra #science #evolution #justsostories #flies #fly #stripes #blackandwhite #research #animal #horse #nature #beauty #natgeo #travelphotography #environment #homeschool #teacher #travel #adventure #kenya #africa #photography #africageophoto #africageo #photographer #wildlifephotography #love #explore #photooftheday

As a Dutchie I would never have thought that I could desperately long for rain, but by Lord, these rains can't come soon enough! Kenya is bone dry at the moment, the dust is unbearable, and bushfires are flaming up everywhere. Today they came very close.... Our amazing community worked together to beat, slash and dig, and luckily managed to control and stop the fire, without anybody getting hurt. But we're not out of the woods yet, untill the rains come. #beautifulnaivasha #community #bushfire #climatechange #countyourblessings

Andar por dónde corre el río, y ver y tocar la piedra modelada por el agua, es un regalo más de la naturaleza. ¡CUÍDALA! • • En Valley of the Death me entristeció ver las paredes llenas de frases y nombres...metros y metros de frases absurdas. • • No dejemos señales, no grabemos la piedra, las cosas y lugares bellos existen para dejar marcado tu corazón e inundadas tú retinas. Sé agradecido. Si vas a dejar una señal que sea tu huella en el suelo que pisas. • • . S O O N #365daystravelling W I T H @sararaiwi .
