What is a Quagga?

The Quagga is an extinct member of the equine family. Like the Zebra, the species was found in South Africa, but it bore more resemblance to a horse than does the former, being easier to break in and ride

It is believed that the last known Quagga was a stallion owned by Lord Morton in 1870
