    The most obvious is that the Burchells has shadow stripes and the Hartmanns does not. Beyond that I don't know of another physical difference. But then I'm now zebra expert either.

    My apologies if I step on your toes Dennis, I take note that the question was directed at you.

    Burchell = plains zebra
    Hartmann = mountain zebra, which at times is also referred to as the Quagga.
    (True Quagga's being extinct)

    Hartmann zebra: Black stripes with plain white stripes over the hind quarters and ribs.
    Burchell: They have the brown / shadow stripe in the white, in between the dark black stripes.

    Hartmann: Stripes over the ribs stop short, leaving a white stomach.
    Burchell: Stripes axtend all the way to the bottom of the stomach.

    Hartmann: The stripes going down the legs go all the way to hooves.
    Burchell: Stripes down the legs stop short of the hooves.

    Hartmann: Have more rounded or oval shaped ears.
    Burchell: Ears are a little more pointy.

    Hartmann: Hair growing above the nose, going up towards the eyes, is red in color.
    Burchell: Hair growing above the nose is black.

    Hartmann: Has a prominent dewlap
    Burchell: No dewlap.

    Then the spoor of the two species differ, Hartmann herds normally consist of smaller groups than Burchells and the Hartmann's stripes on the back is in a grid form.
