Info about the White Rhino
The white rhino is also known as the square-lipped rhino and there are two subspecies, the southern and northern.
The northern white rhino is critically endangered and possibly extinct in the wild. Their near extinction is due to decades of rampant poaching for rhino horn.
White rhinos have two horns on the end of their nose. The front horn is much larger than the inner horn. Rhinos are known for their distinct ‘prehistoric’, solid look, being one of the oldest land mammal species in the world.
Rhinos tend to wallow in the mud, which serves as a cooling technique and effective protection from the sun and also insect repellent.
There are two African species of rhino, the white and the black. The white rhino being the larger of the two, it has a bigger head, due to the muscles that support its neck. The white rhino feeds from the ground with its head lowered for much of the day. the colour of their skin is grey.
There is no difference in the skin colour of white and black rhinos, despite their names.
