Zebra (Equus quagga) by Frederik Borgmeier

"The quagga was not uniformely coloured, but, as the 23 preserved skins demonstrate, varied quite considerably regarding the degree of stripe reduction."  These are llustrations of some of the preserved quagga skins, all over 130 years old, showing their diversity in color and striping patterns. - image by Daniel Foidl / breedingback blog;  "Breeding-back" aims to restore or immitate extinct animals like the quagga by selective breeding.

The Quagga became extinct in1880. A yellowish-brown subspecies of the plains zebra with stripes only on its head, the quagga was a close relative of horses and zebras. It lived on grassy plains and in the drier parts of South Africa. It is very sad to know that the true quagga was hunted down for meat and vanished almost unnoticed, before any conservation efforts were made.

EXTINCT: 12 August The last Quagga died at the Amsterdam Zoo, where she had lived since 9 May It was not realized at the time that this Quagga mare was the very last of her kind.

Scientists from South Africa were able to recreate an extinct subspecies of zebra called quagga. By analyzing preserved DNA samples of the animal, the researchers were able to breed the animal closer to how it originally looked many years ago.

Quagga - I strongly suspect that this is Photoshopped since the quagga is an extinct animal.  There is, however, a weird project that is trying to revive the species based on selective breeding.  I have no idea what the purpose is other than to say "we can".  There have been successful pattern variations but no true quagga to date.
