There are many patterns in nature that repeat. There’s probably a reason for them, but being more into geology, I’m not sure what many of them are. Take this little cryptopod sent in by RowanVT: I think part of it wants to be a zebra.
Silly wasp or bee or whatever you are. You’re not a zebra. Even if you do have zebra stripes on your rear.
You live in a hole in the ground. Zebras don’t live in the ground.
You have antennae. Zebra don’t have antennae!
You have yellow legs. Zebras don’t have yellow legs! Also, you have six of them. Zebras have only four (sometimes less, if a lion’s bitten one off).
Now your stripes look yellow! Zebra stripes don’t look yellow. Not unless a lion’s peed on them or something.
You have thin, clear wings. Zebras don’t have wings of any sort.
You have eyes as big as your head. Zebras don’t have eyes that big. I don’t think you’re a zebra at all, little wasp-bee-thingy.
