In , the English naturalist Charles Hamilton Smith wrote that the quagga was 'unquestionably best calculated for domestication, both as regards strength and docility'. Some specimens also appeared to be intermediate between the two in striping, and the extant Burchell's zebra population still exhibits limited striping. Once a sufficiently quagga-like population has been created, participants in the project plan to release them in the Western Cape. The quagga was probably vulnerable to extinction due to its limited distribution, and it may have competed with domestic livestock for forage. The skins were traded or used locally. The last specimen was featured on a Dutch stamp in Like zebras, the quagga has stripes, though these only appear on the front half of their bodies. These animals used to roam South Africa in vast herds, but European settlers fixed the beasts in their sights, killing them at an alarming rate. Modern plains zebra populations may have originated from southern Africa, and the quagga appears to be less divergent from neighbouring populations than the northernmost living population in northeastern Uganda. The stripes were boldest on the head and neck and became gradually fainter further down the body, blending with the reddish brown of the back and flanks, until disappearing along the back. A zebra can change its stripes The project has not been without its critics. Reverse engineering A group called the Quagga Project has worked to resurrect the little-known species. Today, some stuffed specimens of quaggas and southern Burchell's zebra are so similar that they are impossible to definitely identify as either, since no location data was recorded. The practice is controversial, since the resulting zebras will resemble the quaggas only in external appearance, but will be genetically different. It can therefore be concluded that the two subspecies graded morphologically into each other. The first foal of the project was born in The last population in the wild, in the Orange Free State , was extirpated in the late s. Zebras from Namibia appear to be the closest genetically to the quagga. Quaggas, wildebeest, and ostriches, which occurred together during historical times in a mutually beneficial association, could be kept together in areas where the indigenous vegetation has to be maintained by grazing. Now, a group of scientists outside of Cape Town are bringing it back. It was a grazer, and its habitat range was restricted to the grasslands and arid interior scrubland of the Karoo region of South Africa , today forming parts of the provinces of Northern Cape , Eastern Cape , Western Cape and the Free State.

Beyond, on those sultry plains which are completely taken possession of by wild beasts, and may with strict propriety be termed the domains of savage nature, it occurs in interminable herds; and, although never intermixing with its more elegant congeners, it is almost invariably to be found ranging with the white-tailed gnu and with the ostrich, for the society of which bird especially it evinces the most singular predilection. Testing remaining quagga skins revealed the animal was in fact a sub-species of the plains zebra. Modern plains zebra populations may have originated from southern Africa, and the quagga appears to be less divergent from neighbouring populations than the northernmost living population in northeastern Uganda. Quaggas, wildebeest, and ostriches, which occurred together during historical times in a mutually beneficial association, could be kept together in areas where the indigenous vegetation has to be maintained by grazing. The animal was formerly extremely common within the colony; but, vanishing before the strides of civilisation, is now to be found in very limited numbers and on the borders only. A zebra can change its stripes The project has not been without its critics. The female specimens used in the study were larger than the males on average. This type of selective breeding is called breeding back. Five photographs of this specimen are known, taken between and Now, however, scientists have bred an animal that looks strikingly similar with the help of DNA and selective breeding. These animals used to roam South Africa in vast herds, but European settlers fixed the beasts in their sights, killing them at an alarming rate. You're not alone. Harley hypothesized that the genes which characterized the quagga would still be present in the zebra, and could manifest through selective breeding. The extinction of the quagga was internationally accepted by the Convention for the Preservation of Wild Animals, Birds and Fish in Africa. The last captive quagga, a female in Amsterdam's Natura Artis Magistra zoo, lived there from 9 May until it died on 12 August , but its origin and cause of death are unclear. The last population in the wild, in the Orange Free State , was extirpated in the late s. Some specimens also appeared to be intermediate between the two in striping, and the extant Burchell's zebra population still exhibits limited striping. Today, some stuffed specimens of quaggas and southern Burchell's zebra are so similar that they are impossible to definitely identify as either, since no location data was recorded. Bands of many hundreds are thus frequently seen doing their migration from the dreary and desolate plains of some portion of the interior, which has formed their secluded abode, seeking for those more luxuriant pastures where, during the summer months, various herbs thrust forth their leaves and flowers to form a green carpet, spangled with hues the most brilliant and diversified. Reverse engineering A group called the Quagga Project has worked to resurrect the little-known species. It had a standing mane with brown and white stripes. The geographical range of the quagga does not appear to extend to the northward of the river Vaal.

Reinhold Rau , pioneer of the Quagga Project , claimed that this is an optical illusion: The geographical range of the quagga does not appear to extend to the northward of the river Vaal. Read More "The progress of the project has in fact followed that prediction. The female specimens used in the study were larger than the males on average. Lord Morton's mare was sold and was subsequently bred with a black stallion, resulting in offspring that again had zebra stripes. The animal, a relative of the zebra, went extinct over years ago. In addition, a mounted head and neck, a foot, seven complete skeletons, and samples of various tissues remain. It appears to have had a high degree of polymorphism , with some having almost no stripes and others having patterns similar to the extinct southern population of Burchell's zebra, where the stripes covered most of the body except for the hind parts, legs and belly. In , the naturalist Henry Bryden wrote: The practice is controversial, since the resulting zebras will resemble the quaggas only in external appearance, but will be genetically different. It has also been evidence that the zebras developed striping patterns as thermoregulation to cool themselves down, and that the quagga lost them due to living in a cooler climate, [31] [32] although one problem with this is that the mountain zebra lives in similar environments and has a bold striping pattern. With each new group of foals, the distinct colorings have become stronger and more defined. To differentiate between the quagga and the zebras of the project, they refer to it as "Rau quaggas". Modern plains zebra populations may have originated from southern Africa, and the quagga appears to be less divergent from neighbouring populations than the northernmost living population in northeastern Uganda.

A cryptic function for protection from predators stripes obscure the individual zebra in a herd and biting flies which are less attracted to striped objects , as well as various social functions, have been proposed for zebras in general.

And in fact we have over the course of 4, 5 generations seen a progressive reduction in striping, and lately an increase in the brown background color showing that our original idea was in fact correct," says Harley. The last captive quagga, a female in Amsterdam's Natura Artis Magistra zoo, lived there from 9 May until it died on 12 August , but its origin and cause of death are unclear. Zebras from Namibia appear to be the closest genetically to the quagga. You're not alone. Instead, the study supported a north-south genetic continuum for plains zebras, with the Ugandan population being the most distinct. In , the English naturalist Charles Hamilton Smith wrote that the quagga was 'unquestionably best calculated for domestication, both as regards strength and docility'. Only a few descriptions have been given of tame or domesticated quaggas in South Africa. According to Eric Harley, the project's leader and a professor at Cape Town University, the key was hidden in the animal's genetics.

It had a standing mane with brown and white stripes. The first foal of the project was born in Reverse engineering A group called the Quagga Project has worked to resurrect the little-known species. He was only able to obtain a single male, which in desperation he bred with a female horse.

During the s, quaggas were used as harness animals for carriages in London, the males probably being gelded to mitigate their volatile nature. Qagga



Some have called the project a stunt, saying all that's been created is a different looking zebra, without taking into account the ecological adaptations or behavior differences in the original quagga. The skins were traded or used locally. The earliest Dutch colonists in South Africa had already fantasized about this possibility, because their imported work horses did not perform very well in the extreme climate and regularly fell prey to the feared African horse sickness.

Now, a group of scientists outside of Cape Town are bringing it back. In Europe, the only confirmed cases are two stallions driven in a phaeton by Joseph Wilfred Parkins, sheriff of London in , and the quaggas and their hybrid offspring of London Zoo, which were used to pull a cart and transport vegetables from the market to the zoo.

Quaggas, wildebeest, and ostriches, which occurred together during historical times in a mutually beneficial association, could be kept together in areas where the indigenous vegetation has to be maintained by grazing. They found no evidence for subspecific differentiation based on morphological differences between southern populations of zebras, including the quagga. To differentiate between the quagga and the zebras of the project, they refer to it as "Rau quaggas". Its skull was described as having a straight profile and a concave diastema , and as being relatively broad with a narrow occiput. The skins were traded or used locally.
