white with black strips. 100% agreement on that one (well, until someone else decides to vote).

BTW, why do you ask? Can't say i've ever thought about it before.

scientifically, they are black with white stripes, if you look at one closely you will find that it infact has nothing to do with skin colour but infact the actual hair, If you look at the black stripes they are completely black, look at the white and you will find traces of black hairs in amongst them, therefore concluding that they are Black with white stripes. The same as if you streak your hair, you will still find strands of hair your original colour in amongst the died hair, but not the other way around.

But really as someone said we have way to much time on our hands.

Actually its unknown!
I think most scientists think they were originaly a dark color and developed the white stripes during there evoloution to blend into the Jungle and hide from predators.
Theres 4 species of Zebra one is extinct. The extinct species had a dark rear end and the front 1/2 was striped.

the silhouette of the plains zebra evokes a pony, as opposed to Grevy's zebra that is more similar to a mule or an ass. Background colour white. Wide black stripes that reach down to the belly, broader in rump and hindquarters, where they are oblique. At the tail base stripes are longitudinal. In males they are jet black, whereas in females they fade to brown.
although i think its more a chicken/egg thing.
