Strange Planet: On Beyond Zebra

zebrasuit.jpgEver wonder what it would feel like to go sightseeing in Washington, D.C. while dressed as a zebra? William Shubert, who works for National Geographic international editions, satisfied his curiosity by zipping himself into a full-body Morphsuit and heading out on the town. He filed a report, with more photos, on National Geographic’s Pop Omnivore blog.

For real zebra action, check out these zebra video clips from National Geographic’s seven-episode documentary series Great Migrations, being broadcast this month on the National Geographic Channel.

    Are there any Zebras in Portugal please?
    Not including the ones painted on the roads, either :)

    Guess who gave the name to the Zebra – yes it was one of those Portuguese sailors of a discoveries sail round Africa.
    Some things that you may not know about Portugal :
    gave sweet oranges to the west, think about that while you drink you morning orange juice!
    Tea to the English;
    and curry to India;
    at the time of the discoveries some middle east counties thought Portugal was a Jewish nation!
    Learn all about this and more when I take you on one of my private guides tours _
