Zebras

Interesting fact overheard from presentation at Taronga Zoo. Zebra mothers and babies memorize the unique stripe patterns on each other almost immediately and can pick each other out of a crowd of zebras easily very soon after birth.

A zebra’s stripes also act as a cooling mechanism, and as a fly repellent. (The surface looks very confusing to a fly, they have trouble landing on zebras.)
