5th generation foal FD15 is now 1 year old!
5th generation foal FD15 is now 1 year old! This “Rau Quagga” is one of several unstriped animals recently born to the Quagga Project.
QUAGGA FOAL NAMED 'KHUMBA'
In a wonderful development that brings the story of SA animation film "Khumba" full circle, a young Quagga foal has been named Khumba after the lead character in the latest movie from Triggerfish Animation. Khumba’s real-life counterpart also only has half his stripes and is part of the Quagga Project Association
The Quagga Project's first 5th Generation Quagga foal was born into the herd on 10 December 2013

2009 This year (2009), one or two of our latest foals may well be candidates for the title "Rau quagga". Since it can take a few months for some stripes to become fully visible, especially on the legs, we await only confirmation that after repeated inspection they genuinely lack scorable stripes in the designated areas of hindbody, fore- and hind-legs.
