The Burchell's zebra (Equus quagga burchellii) is a subspecies of the Plains zebra (Equus quagga).

In 1811, a British naturalist called William John Burchell embarked on a four-year exploration journey, from Cape Town into the wilderness of South Africa and back to Cape Town. During this journey, Burchell found, collected, and documented tens of thousands of new species of both plants and animals. One of these species was a zebra, which was later named after this exceptional naturalist.

Coat Pattern:

The coat of the Burchell's zebra is different from the coat of other species of Plains zebras. While the stripes on the head, neck, and barrel look the same, the stripes on the thigh are sometimes scrambled or partially faded. In addition, the legs might or might not have stripes, although the hocks almost always have some striping on them.

A unique characteristic of the Burchell's zebra coat is the 'shadow stripes' on the rear half of their body. Shadow stripes are lighter than the regular 'black' stripes, and exist in-between them. In some zebras, though not all, the shadow stripes might have a brownish tone.
