A great scientific question has finally been answered. Why do zebras have stripes? This is something that has confused the human brain for centuries. It has been discovered that the reason zebras have stripes is to keep the insects away. By placing striped coats on regular horses, scientists observed that there were many less bus landing on these animals. This strange discovery has told scientists that the stripes present on the zebras cause the insects to not be able to see properly and simply fly past the animals to bump into them. Although this information may not be the most important discovery, it is nice to have an official scientific answer to this mysterious question.
