Their stripes come in different patterns, unique to each individual. There are three species of zebras: the plains zebra, the Grévy's zebra and the mountain zebra. various anthropogenic factors have had a severe impact on zebra populations, in particular hunting for skins and habitat destruction. Grévy's zebra and the mountain zebra are endangered.

Rare Historical Photos

London Zoo 1870 The quagga (/ˈkwəˈxə/) (Equus quagga quagga) is an extinct subspecies of the plains zebra that lived in South Africa. It was long thought to be a distinct species, but recent genetic studies have shown it to be the southernmost subspecies of the plains zebra. It is considered particularly close to Burchell's zebra. Its name is derived from the plains zebra's call, which sounds like "kwa-ha-ha". Wiki

The quagga is much like the Plains zebra, but has a lack of hind stripes and darker body coloring.

Only one quagga was ever photographed alive and only 23 skins are preserved today.The quagga was the first extinct animal to have its DNA analysed,and this 1984 study launched the field of ancient DNA analysis. It confirmed that the quagga was more closely related to zebras than to horses.
