The amazing properties of organisms animals never cease to amaze researchers Recently, it became known that an international team of scientists unravel the mystery of zebra stripes on the body. This information was published by scientists in the "Journal of Experimental Biology." Black-and-white color, as explained by experts, the least attracted the attention of horse flies that pester the animals.
