|Picture: Zebras in Africa|
There is an old African folktale called “how the zebra got its stripes”. It talks about the first zebras and donkeys were still brother and sisters, but one day the king of all the animals invited the two brothers to a feast. Naturally the two brothers also wanted to join the feast; the only problem is that they had plain brown hides. Then they planned to beautify themselves by painting each other, zebra got to go first so donkey painted him with black and white stripes, but when he finished his brother quickly ran away and did not come back. They became bitter enemies and that is why zebras and donkeys have their colors today.
