Zebra Plains - Damara

Equus quagga antiquorum

Distribution: From north-eastern South Africa to central Botswana, northern Namibia and south-western Botswana.

Size: SH: 1.2m. W: 250kg

Description: There are six subspecies of plains zebra: Maneless Zebra, Grant’s Zebra, Crawshay’s Zebra, Selous Zebra, Chapman’s Zebra and Damara Zebra.

A muscular horse-like animal with a relatively short neck and sturdy legs. The stripes are subject to much regional and individual variation.

Sex Determination: Stallions normally have a heavier head but are stockier in the body. Mares have a thick black line between the back legs under the tail where the genitals are.

Trophy Assessment: Depending on preference, sometimes mares will be targeted for a flawless skin and stallions if one wishes to do a mount to show the heavy head and muscular neck.

Shot Placement: Broadside shot is normally quite easy as the stripes form a triangle on the shoulder which serves as a natural target. A frontal shot is also a very effective shot.
