He was curious moreover, to find out whether his own quagga was quite equal to any of its old companions.
No; the big, solid-hoofed antelope that eats like nylghau or quagga.

zebra-like South African animal, 1785, from Afrikaans (1710), from the name for the beast in a native language, perhaps Hottentot quacha, probably of imitative origin. In modern Xhosa, the form is iqwara, with a clicking -q-. What was likely the last one died in an Amsterdam zoo in 1883.
