10 - The Blotched Tabby

from Part IV - Cats


The abnormal animal featured here is a type of tabby cat with blotches instead of stripes. It turns out that the same mutation that causes this also transforms the spots on cheetahs into blotches as well. As weird as this sounds, it all makes sense in terms of Turing's model, which also explains stripes on zebras and fish.
