Hello all. I'm going to Zambia in August. I was wondering if someone could tell me whether a Crawshay's Zebra and a Boehm's Zebra are the same animal. I shot my Boehm's in Mozambique. I know they are close but there are so many sub species and different names for the same animal that I'm not sure and the safari company doesn't seem to know for sure. Thanks

NO.

Boehm's Zebra or Grant's Zebra
Grant's zebra (Equus quagga boehmi)

Crawshay's zebra (Equus quagga crawshayi)


Look up the scientific name and see what you think of the differences.

Thank you. That's what I thought but this helps. Do you happen to know if you can hunt them in any other countries other than Zambia where I'm going? I think I'll add this to my list now.

That one I will leave to a Zambian.
I’m not up on the current laws/ regs.

This is interesting subject.
On this forum, we generally mention only few species of Zebra, and here some new are mentioned.
Most of Zebra species on this forum mentioned are:

Mountain Zebras:
Hartmann Mountain Zebra, in namibia
Cape Mountain Zebra, South Africa

Plains Zebras:
Burchell Zebra.

But there are more.

Can sombeody more knowledgable, list below, other huntable and non huntable zebra species in Africa, and countries where they live?

I did a little housekeeping in my shop and found some .500 Jeffery ammo that I no longer need. Superior Ammunition and Hendershots loaded them, along with AHR (American Hunting Rifles). Several Woodleigh/A-Square solids along with lead bullets in both 535g and 600g. Message me for any details.

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian
