3D plotting library doesn't occlude objects by depth/perspective.

When the figure is regenerated during the animation, each additional line and points is printed on top of the prior lines and points.

Bug resolution:
 - incorporate occlusions in the 3D plotting / animation library

I'm not sure which of the libraries is the 3d plotting library you're referring to (maybe matplotlib?), but in any event it doesn't ship with python, so this isn't the appropriate bug tracker to report your issue. If it is matplotlib, their issue tracker is here:

Before reporting it there, you'll want to reproduce the problem with a smaller example.
