Caption

Quagga-like zebra between artwork of the behinds of other zebras. Quaggas (Equus quagga) are a subspecies of zebra that became extinct in 1883 due to 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 differences in quagga hindquarters can be seen here, with the quagga-like zebra flanked by two different species, including (right) a Grevy's zebra (Equus grevyi).
