As you see, I didn't reduce the striping much more than in the youngest Rau zebras up-to-date, I mainly added brown hair. Reducing the stripes turned out to be comparably easy by selective breeding, while increasing the brownish colour of the coat is the bigger challenge according to the project. Therefore they want to select more strongly on that feature in future breeding.
Comparing my hypothetical future Rau zebra with stuffed Quagga specimens, I see some striking similarities, but also differences.
