White Rhinoceros - Ceratotherium simum

White rhinos are the second largest land mammals in the world. Their large horns and sizeable bulk make them powerful animals. The white rhino is distinct from the black rhino by its square lip. They have two horns which can be used for defence and attack. These horns grow 8cm every year and have been known to grow as long as 1.5m.
Captive.

  3. Hi Bob,
    What a magnificent beast, what a shame they are hunted for the horns.
    Super set of images and the change in tack is most enjoyable.
