Biologists say Zebras' stripes are a form of camoflage called "motion dazzle."  When a herd moves together, their stripes blur the boundaries between individuals, so they appear to one large animal.  This is believed to confuse predators & make it harder to pick out a single animal to attack, improving their chance of survival.

The hair of the striped hyena is long (shorter in summer than in winter), gray-white to yellowish brown on the sides, legs, and back, with black cross-stripes. Their stiff, black mane on the neck and back is erectile in anger and fear, giving the hyena a larger and more formidable aspect. There is a large black patch on the throat.
