A Horse of a Different PatternThere are several theories about why zebras have stripes. A lot of those theories center around protection from flies and predators. We can see how that would work. Just like black and white patterned clothes can look like they’re in motion when you stare too long, a herd of zebra hanging out could create the same visual effect. As much as we enjoy the idea of the stripes being useful for maintaining cooler body temperatures (because it sounds like magic) it’s a harder theory to wrap our minds around. To be quite honest, our favorite stripes theory suggests they are there to help zebras recognize one from another.Just like every human has unique fingerprints, a zebra’s stripes never match another zebra. It only makes sense then that those varied striped-patterns are for distinguishing one zebra from its look-alikes. So in the spirit of individuality, we decided to it was time to offer another zebra costume option.Design & DetailsSlip into your own zebra stripes with our exclusive Women’s Zebra Costume.
