Quagga Mare - The only photograph of her kind
This 1870 photograph is of the quagga mare who resided at the Regent’s Park Zoo in London. She died not long after being photographed, and a few years later, the last wild quagga was shot. In 1883 in Amsterdam, the last captive quagga died. Only 100 years after being recognized as a separate species from the other zebras of South Africa, the species was extinct.
