    Interesting article Matt. They are a lovely animal for sure. Just a small point but Quaggas are now thought to be (have been) a subspecies of Plains Zebra, rather than a distinct species as was thought until quite recently. cheers

    Thanks Jon. Yes, I probably should have clarified that in the story. I did an article previously on the Quagga Project where I was more specific: http://blog.nature.org/science/2014/10/13/quagga-can-an-extinct-animal-be-bred-back-into-existence/

    I saw some of these “quagga-like” zebras while there. I know it’s controversial but I find it an interesting idea.
