Learn about the Rhino
Did you know that the rhino used to roam across Europe and Asia as well as Africa? Now there are 5 species of rhino left - the Black and White rhino of Africa, and the Indian, Sumatran and very rare Javan rhino in Asia. Three of those 5 species are endangered, and there are thought to be only 60 Javan rhino left in the wild.
Not surprisingly, adult rhinos don't have any animal predators - but man is deadly! They are easily hunted as they gather at water holes where they fall prey to poachers. Rhino are hunted for their horns, which are bought and sold on the "black market" (that means illegally). Rhino horns are ground down and used in Asian medicine, and are literally worth their weight in gold!
Rhinoceroses are the largest land mammal after the elephant, although the 5 species vary in size from 13 foot long to only 5 foot long. They have small brains and are herbivores, but they are fast - rhinos can run at up to 30-40 miles an hour!
