August 12 — On this day in 1883, the last living Quagga died in the Amsterdam Zoo. Appearing to have the head of a zebra and the body of a horse, the Quagga was actually a subspecies of the plains zebra. A selective-breeding project in South Africa is currently attempting to bring the animal back from extinction.
Happy 61st birthday to everybody’s brother, Hulk Hogan.
