It is based on the ceramic signs the Camel Zombies hold in Plants vs. Zombies 2. Its name and the way it is animated when played may be a reference to zebra crossings, a type of pedestrian crossing used in many places around the world.

You can use this trick when stronger zombie fighters are present, such as Wizard Gargantuar or Shieldcrusher Viking, especially zombies that use their effects periodically through turns. Kite Flyer's amount of health can help you gain more cards, Paparazzi Zombie can gain a small stat boost on top of more health combined with his ability, and Newspaper Zombie can absorb more damage to gain more strength. This can be done the same with Jester, allowing him to take more hits. The fact that this trick affects every zombie fighter on the field will allow them to be present longer in order to protect your zombie hero.
A good strategy is to use Camel Crossing when there are several Armored zombies on the field, since the damage done to them are reduced when they get hurt. Using this trick, you can make your Armored zombies become much more menacing, even a small group of Coneheads can easily become a force to be reckoned with upon the utility of Camel Crossing.
Since this is a pet trick, it can be used to activate the special abilities of Cat Lady and Zookeeper. However, only The Smash can use this combo. Despite the fact that this combo is restricted to The Smash, this synergy is extremely great with Zookeeper, giving a +1 boost to all pet zombies on the board when this trick is used for each Zookeeper, as well as giving them extra health.
