That's actually one of the reasons I like my animals to have whatever version of the "colored spots on a white background" appearance that that species has. It's kind of like that game of trying to find pictures in the clouds, except you're finding them in your pet LOL.

I used to have a whole collection of photos of animals with markings that looked like something or the other, but I think it was never backed up to a CD and was lost in a computer crash at some point.

Horses are pretty good for that game -- most other species have ONE spotting gene, so the chances of a truly odd looking marking seem to be reduced. Horses on the other hand have 5 different white spotting genes. So if you have a combination of them, you can get some really warped patterns.
