Background

‘Two Zebras Kissing In The Rain’ or are the two beautiful zebras fighting, while there is a downpour. These zebras are on hard brown soil, and behind them are big green bushes. The rain adds a smooth softness to that wildlife photograph.

Zebras are single-hoofed animals and are native to Africa, as well similar to horses and donkeys. Indeed, they are in the same genus, Equus. There’s always a debate regarding zebras whether they are white with black stripes or black with white stripes. However, they are white with black stripes! That is because the black stripes end at their bellies and the underside of their legs, leaving much white space. Yet, their skin under their white coats is black. There are a few species of zebra, and all of them have different patterned stripes. Be that as it may, each zebras stripes within the same species are also various. It is similar to how no two human beings have the same fingerprint. According to the National Geographic, the pattern on zebras stripes while they stand together actually confuses predators. It is hard for them to decipher how many zebras there are.
