If you were an alien biologist who's interested in understanding what a mammal was, and all you had was zebras, it's very unlikely you would focus on their mammary glands, because only half the specimens have them. You'd probably focus on the stripes, which are ubiquitous.-- Carol Cleland of the University of Colorado, 'Second Genesis'
