It’s all about the beauty. And the beast …

Africa in black and white

Its scientific name is Equus quagga, not to be confused with the extinct quagga, which was a very close cousin until the late 19th century. This is the Planes Zebra and when you travel in Africa, you’ll find them all the way from the Cape through to the Karoo, Natal, the Kruger Park, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Botswana, all the way to Ethiopia. Apparently there’s even one in the Cincinnati Zoo … Even though the quagga has joined the dodo, the zebra is ok. In black and white, they number 750 000. Far from red yet.
