Their offspring are grey, in the area where they live there are white and black rocks which they use to hide from their predators, this only benefits white and black rabbits. However, grey rabbits will have a greater chance to get eaten. Another example can be that in a community of giraffes there is a tall tree where their food supply is.

Animals can be a valid representation of the society in the real world. Because animals are not real human but represents human, they allow the storyteller to get to its main point quickly without offending any human race.
