    The Quagga was a subspecies of the plains Zebra, identified by a pattern of stripes unique to the subspecies, that went extinct when the last female died in captivity in 1883. Although the term Quagga was used indiscriminately then to refer to any Zebra, there was actually a period where no one had realized that the subspecies had gone extinct, but id did definitely survive up until the “modern” era (Or rather, it died in the Romantic Period of the Holcene Epoch) and the 19th century.

    I hope this helped!

         A quagga is an extinct zebra subspecies once found in parts of South Africa. Its head was striped like a zebra’s but the rest of its body was a brownish color. The quagga is thought to have evolved quite recently: 120,000 to 290,000 years ago.

         The quagga was hunted to extinction in the late 19th century. The last wild quaggas were captured in 1870 and the last captive quagga died in 1883. A group called the Quagga Project is trying to recreate the animal through selective breeding of zebras.

    The quagga lived in the drier parts of South Africa and was hunted for its meat and hide, and is one of the many victims of modern mass extinction. The last captive quagga, a mare, died on August 12, 1883 at the Artis Magistra zoo in Amsterdam. The quagga was the first extinct creature to have its DNA studied. The only quagga to have ever been photographed alive was a mare at the Zoological Society of London’s Zoo in Regent’s Park in 1870.
