Why the zebra got its stripes: To deter flies from landing on it By Nicola Davis, The Guardian, adapted by Newsela staff 03/05/2019
Martan how was the main researcher for this subject he and a group of people studied how much flies landed on horses and how many flies landed on zebras. There was also zebras and horses in this article, the animals were tested to see if flies are more likely to land on horses or to land on zebras who’s stripes might make them less likely to land on.
The main event reported was why flies turn away from zebras. Also why did the zebras get there strips. Was it jest to keep flies away?
The article was written on 03/05/19. So it was written yesterday. The article was the recent research.
The location of the article was the university of bristol where some of the research happened. Other place included the zoo and horse pens.
I think the author's purpose of writing this article is to inform us that some things that happen to people and animals happen to help us. I also think the author's purpose of writing this is to explain this if you have ever seen flies turn away from zebras or just to tell you because he thought that the idea was an interesting topic to discuss.
My reaction to this article is wow I didn’t realize there was so much in this world and cool zebra stripes help them from other animal so maybe some things about us help us
