Invasive quagga mussels are replacing their equally destructive cousin, the zebra mussel, in calmer waters in the Great Lakes, Wisconsin researchers said. While zebra mussels still dominate in fast-moving streams and rivers, the larger quagga mussels prefer soft lake bottoms of sand and silt, said Suzanne Peyer, a doctoral candidate in the zoology department of the University of Wisconsin, Madison. Zebra mussels prefer to attach to hard surfaces, such as rocks, gravel, pipes and ship hulls,...

It was classified as an original individual species in 1788. But with more study, all zebras were described as individual because of the great variation in coat patterns. Taxonomists had no way to tell which were true species, subspecies, or natural variants. The Quagga was distinguished from other zebras...
