Plains zebra / Equus quagga / Punda milia. Woodland Park Zoo, Seattle, Washington, USA.
The Plains zebra (or Punda milia in Swahili) (Latin name: Equus quagga, formerly Equus burchelli), also known as the Common zebra or the Burchell's zebra, is the most common and geographically widespread form of zebra, once being found from the south of Ethiopia right through east Africa as far south as Angola and eastern South Africa. The Plains Zebra is much less numerous than it once was, because of human activities such as hunting it for its meat and hide, as well as encroachment on much of its former habitat, but it remains common in game reserves.
