Justifying security through obscurity simply because zebra's have stripes,
that is funny.

I think in general it is a bad idea to compare 'nature' to technology. In
the world of technology the zebra's stripes are meaningless (infrared as an
example). Same principle with military garb, it will trick the human eye,
but cripple under thorough analysis.

Adding obscurity often does little for actual security, and provides more
to the false sense of it.

On a side note, zebra stripes are no more obscure than your fingerprint is
to your identity.
