it has been confirmed that zebra stripes do not allow them to hide from predators

 

they study their visibility to each other, humans , hyneas and lions in the open and woodland areas, and at different distances

 

 

their is an interesting series of digitally altered photos to illustrate the point

 

it is based on the assumption that zebras see like horses and lions and hyneas see like domestic cats

 

the article is called ZEBRA STRIPES THROUGH THE EYES OF THEIR PREDATORS, ZEBRAS AND HUMANS and can be found at http://www.plosone.org
