Have you considered this is a mutation?...

Yeah, it's really interesting the inherent variety that exists in
organisms. Seems like a somewhat unstudied phenomenon. People like
to class things into tightly defined taxa, when they may in fact have
a lot of natural variation.

He found several zebras over some time and in different locations I
think in the same drainage. I think "normal" perch were present as
well. I will pass your message on to him.
