Plains zebra
Zebras undertake the longest migration of all mammals. And they like company; herds can contain more than 150,000 animals. Scientists don’t yet know why zebras have stripes: to be better camouflaged, to recognize their peers, to cool down faster, or even to ward off horse flies — which would be repelled by the reflection of the striped pattern.
