I know that the answer has to do with mathematics, which relates to the mammal's fetus as it develops. Mammals with relatively long, thin foetuses have stripes (tigers, zebras) while chubby relatively shorter foetuses develop spots. The answer also relates to mathematics, which provides the only answer. Biology does not. We heard all of this on a radio program in Sept. or Oct. 1998 on public radio, but after long searching on the Net, we can not find any reference to this at all. Help!!!
