Did You Know

 Did you know, the benefit of a zebra's stripes? It makes flies harder to land on their hide. The stripes confuse the flies.

  11. That's pretty interesting. I wish I could find a way to put on stripes during the summer months to avoid bugs and mosquitoes. Thanks for that tip!(lol) Hugs, RO
