From The Collaborative International Dictionary of English v.0.48 :

  Quagga \Quag"ga\, n. [Hottentot.] (Zool.)
     A South African wild ass ({Equus quagga syn. Hippotigris
     quagga). The upper parts are reddish brown, becoming paler
     behind and behind and beneath, with dark stripes on the face,
     neck, and fore part of the body. The species became extinct
     in the late 1800's, largely due to excessive hunting.
