Caption

Quagga-like zebra. Hindquarters of a quagga-like zebra (Equus sp.). Quaggas (Equus quagga) are a subspecies of zebra that became extinct in 1883 due to extensive hunting. Unlike other zebras quaggas only had stripes on their head, neck and forebody, and had pale brown hindquarters. Genetic tests that showed little difference between the quagga and the present day plains zebra (Equus burchelli) have led to a selective breeding programme to produce zebras that have the appearance of quaggas. The hindquarters of this zebra have lost their stripes as a result of the breeding programme. Photographed at the Elandsberg private reserve, South Africa.
