Scope note
Striped equine found in dry upland plains in Namibia and a few scattered areas in western South Africa. Although it has been proposed that the Cape mountain zebra (Equus zebra) and the Hartmann's mountain zebra (Equus hartmannae) are two distinct species, recent genetic evidence indicates that they are a single species, in spite of their now inhabiting non-overlapping territories and typically differing in the width of the black stripes and variations in sexual dimorphism.
