Thursday Zebra

I was in Bilbao recently, when I saw them: an unusual species of partially underground-dwelling zebras. Seen here in their morning migration to the meadows of local parks (kindly given their own traffic lanes so that cars don't run them over), only their backs are visible above the ground.
At night, when they make their way back to wherever they go, the white stripes catch the moonlight, making them glitter in the dark. A clever evolutionary adaptation to city life in the midst of all the cars.

Incredible find. Are you sure you haven't been skulking around highway maintenance sheds with a paint brush?
