DID YOU KNOW – That there are 3 species of ZEBRAS?

THE STRIPES – I just learned that contrary to what I had always believed – the Zebra stripes are NOT for camouflage  – nope, instead they are ALTERNATE colors to keep them cool!!! A zebra’s stripy coat is thought to disperse more than 70 per cent of incoming heat, preventing the animal from overheating in the African sun. AND the further SOUTH  a Zebra lives in the AFRICAN plains, the farther apart their stripes are!!!! COOL!!! LITERALLY!

ZEBRA DECOR IS “on trend” but I think it kind of always is….at least for me!

ZEBRAS BY SCALAMANDRE – FABRIC AND WALLPAPER COME SIN MANY WONDERFUL COLORS

JONATHAN ADLER SHARES MY LOVE FOR ZEBRAS

MY FAVORITE PILLOW SOURCE – THE PILLOW COLLECTION HAS SO MANY AWESOME ZEBRA PILLOWS!!!!

 AS With ALL my “LOVES”, when it comes to decor and accessories –  I must contain myself!! There is a fine line between too much ZEBRA and just the right amount to add some character and whimsy to a room. I would not want to be known as “that lady with  ‘Zebra House'”!!!!

one last FUN FACT ABOUT ZEBRAS THAT MAKES ME LOVE THEM EVEN MORE!

ZEBRAS are very social. They travel in groups

ZEBRAS TRAVEL IN GROUPS FOR THEIR WHOLE LIVES – AWF

THEY FORM relationships, They travel in large groups called herds for social reasons and for safety – predators have a hard time figuring out what is what among all those stripes!!! They have a little sense of humor I think! And apparently, they will defend a threatened member of heir herd against a predator and can do some pretty fierce damage with their KICKS!!!

DO NOT make a ZEBRA mad!
