So by the way re the zebra –  Form of camouflage called disruptive coloration that breaks up the outline of the body.

In the evening or dawn when predators are most active zebras seem to look indistinct. = an Optical illusion or what?

 

Some patterns can create optical illusions, example the one below.

Can you see it move- and does it really?

Why do zebras have stripes / patterns  at all? Scientists aren’t sure, but many theories center on their utility as some form of camouflage. The patterns may make it difficult for predators to identify a single animal from a running herd and distort distance at dawn and dusk. Or they may dissuade insects that recognize only large areas of single-colored fur or act as a kind of natural sunscreen. Because of their uniqueness, stripes may also help zebras recognize one another.
