I heard a person — looking at a solitary zebra — say, “That is horrible camouflage! How is it not extinct?”

The answer is found by looking at zebras in a group. When they run in a herd, it becomes impossible for a predator to distinguish one from another. Heads merge with hindquarters merging with a shoulder.  They become an amorphous monochromatic cluster with nothing to bite onto.
