What is black, white and striped everywhere – except for his head?
The horses carrying the zebra coat on a farm in the UK. They were dressed for investigations investigating a mystery that puzzled scientists for more than a century. , Davis and co-author of a study published Wednesday at PLOS One. "So when you see these brave models as a giraffe or zebra, as the biologist says, why?" the function of this impudent animal print. It's called camouflage to make the big predators go wrong, a signal of identity to other zebras and a kind of air conditioning. Now most scientists agree that the function of the zebras strips is to protect themselves from biting flies that can carry lethal diseases. But as they approached, the zebra seemed to have blinded so many flies that they could not control a controlled landing. The flies grew too fast and either deviated in time ̵

"We do not know what this is, but the stripes have effect until the last second." "Probably just blows up the fly," said Dr. Kai. how the pole rotates. Something like this can happen when the flies approach the zebra. From far, the fly can interpret the object as gray, but when approaching, the diagonal strips of the zebra may look like moving in false directions. As a result, a fly may think it is heading toward an open space instead of landing. Or maybe the sudden appearance of stripes can overload the fly's vision and make it buzzle. flies. "Playing with these variables will allow us to enter the fly's head or into the eye of the fly to find out what kind of confusion it is," says Dr. Caro. Meanwhile, people who plan to be around horses or horse flies may want to consider wearing a zebra seal rather than hard to avoid biting. Perhaps you should also make your horse twin.
