    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...

    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.........

    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 RevoluciĆ³n 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.
