Zoo accused of passing off donkey as zebra
they should name him politics and then everyone can agree its fake
Some other great stuff from this article:
"Another Gaza zoo put stuffed animals on display in 2012 because of the shortages of animals.
In 2013, a Chinese zoo in Henan province tried to pass off a Tibetan mastiff dog as an African lion, and in 2017 a zoo in Guangxi province disappointed visitors by exhibiting blow-up plastic penguins.
Weeks later, another Guangxi zoo drew condemnation for displaying plastic butterflies."
I remember a sequence on a comic of Zip & Zap readed when child, where they did exactly the same: paint a donkey for make it pass as a zebra. So the idea is old...
Just waiting for 'fake Gnus'..........
This is excellent.
Here's one I prepared earlier:
Here's a fake zebra with a pair of fake zebriefs.
They look pretty real to me.
As far as I know, they were made using fake zebra skin. I suppose this could be proved after a debriefing session.
I was thinking the bra-ness and briefsness of them were genuine, but I would agree the zebra-ness probably isn't.
Also not sure debriefing is an appropriate subject for a family show like Zoochat, fun though it can undoubtedly be in the right setting.
I've heard of Loch Ness, but not Bra Ness, Briefs Ness or Zebra Ness.
You've not seen the kids' cartoon show 'The Nessies'? It feature a number of Loch Ness Monster type creatures, with names like Ferocious Ness and Sporty Ness. There's one called Lovely Ness, who might just wear the garments we have been discussing.
See what I did there? Deftly steered the conversation back to natural history.........
Nothing in this thread is natural...
Are the undies made from natural thread?
We have always filled the gaps in this conversation with quotes of other threads
FBBird: An appropriate subject for a family show like Zoochat.
The mouthparts of a sea urchin are sometimes called an 'Aristotle's lantern'. The 'Aristotle's lantern' at Gent's Natural History Museum was a metal screw.
"Zebra" donkeys are a standard feature at the Avenida Revolución of Tijuana.
As for horses painted with stripes: a few years ago, painting horses with stripes used to be a fad among European hobby equestrians, based on an Hungarian study that this would deter horsefly attacks.
