No, it's a quagga!
From the Libraries' current exhibition, The Art of African Exploration:
Quaggas were frequently
confused with zebras in early explorers’ accounts. Unlike zebras, a
quagga’s stripes are most distinct on the neck and head, and its coat
is tawny. When first described in 1788, the quagga was regarded as a
separate species. Modern genetic studies indicate that they are likely
related to the plains zebra. Their fewer stripes may be an adaptation
to the open grassland of the south.
Just one of the interesting features in this exhibit on display in the National Museum of Natural History Constitution Avenue lobby until August 2009. —Elizabeth Periale
