Why Zebras Have Stripes?

A myth submitted to the site by Lewis Read

Birmingham, West Midlands, England

A long long time ago when the world was new zebras were plain white. But one day boy a boy called Lewis went to his dad and said why are zebras plain white.
I don't Know said his dad lets go and ask the animal creature.

On there way to the animal creature there was lots of zebras but when they arived the animal was not normal he was half zebra and half human.
He said who disturbs me.
It is lewis.
Well what do you wont.
I would like to know why zebras are plain white.
I don't no but here have this then in one week zebras will have black stripes on there back.

So they walked back home with the big box in their hand's When they got home they went to bed but lewis could not stop thinking about the big box. So he got out of bed and lewis went to the big box and opend it. Then all the zebras went plain black.

The animal creature said oh no he's turned all the zebras plain black, then the animal creature got a black posion and a white posion and mixed them together and then threw them both in the air and turned them black and white.

And thats why zebras have black stripes.

This is great. I remembered it from a long time ago when someone told me. Recently someone asked me why are zebras striped and I remembered this myth. So, I looked it up on google and there it was. I would change one thing though. Fix the spelling errors.
