X, Y and Z is for ... zebra butterfly!

The zebra butterfly's stripes are warning signs!

The black and yellow stripes warn birds and other enemies that they are not good to eat.

The colour patterns of many others butterflies copy the stripes of zebra butterflies - they want to trick their predators into thinking that they are the bad tasting zebra butterflies as well.
