You know this is why I like being on the forum we all share information and photos of the animals that we see. Here I am doing research on my project for my studies and I find many interesting things all of you have said.

Thank you very much! :D

Many wildlife guides confidently state that temperature differences between the black and white stripes on a zebra set up convection currents that help to control its body temperature.

Does anyone know where this comes from ? - an internet search of the scientific literature does not provide any sources at all.

Or is it a modern version of a just so story ?

Sorry if I am ignorant, but why do a zebra require such sophisticated cooling while the wildebeest and buffalo grazing next to him are much darker in color without such space-age cooling technology ?

Hello, Peter!
I don't know, but an interesting bumshot I posted under "quizzes" a while back shows a clear difference in the consistency of the black and white hairs, shown up by more mud sticking to the black ones...interesting! :hmz:

Maybe the black ones are indeed hotter? :shock:
