Going For The Gold, Zebra's Pigmentation Puts Target On Their Backs

Camouflage in the animal kingdom is the result of evolution over long periods of time where certain species begin blend into their habitat to avoid predators.  A zebra's nemesis is the lion, but since the 'king of the jungle' is color-blind, when the zebra runs in herds, lions typically can only see a collection of lines moving up and down. However as rare as it is, when a Golden Zebra runs in that same herd, lions can easily spot them, making them easy prey.
