The plains zebra (Equus quagga, formerly Equus burchelli), also known as the common zebra or Burchell’s zebra, is the most common and geographically widespread species of zebra.] It ranges from the south of Ethiopia through East Africa to as far south as Angola and eastern South Africa. The plains zebra remains common in game reserves, but is threatened by human activities such as hunting for its meat and hide, as well as competition with livestock and encroachment by farming on much of its habitat.
