Caption: Hunting quagga. 19th-century illustration of hunters using rifles to shoot a quagga (Equus quagga quagga) in south-western Africa. The quagga, a subspecies of the plains zebra, became extinct in the wild by 1878 and the last captive specimen died in 1883. This illustration is by British artist Thomas Baines (1820-1875). Baines documented the scenery, flora and fauna of southern Africa from 1857 to 1864. In 1858 and 1859 he travelled with British explorer David Livingstone on his expedition along the Zambezi River. Baines then travelled with explorer James Chapman in south-western Africa from 1861 to 1863. This artwork dates from 1862.
