Quagga, an extinct subspecies of plains zebra that lived in South Africa until the 19th century. It was thought to be a distinct species, but genetic studies have shown it to be the southernmost subspecies of plains zebra. It is considered particularly close to Burchell's zebra. Its name was derived from its call, which sounded like "kwa-ha-ha".
