WHAT IS THE RINOCEROUS?


The Rhino is native to Asian and Africa. There are two species, the white and black rhinos. The color refers to the color of the Rhinos' lips and not the color of the animal. The white rhino is also twice as large and has a hump on its back. African rhinos also have two horns and the Asian ones only have one. Asian Rhinos are also far more endangered then the African one. But all of them are on the verge of extinction both in the wild and in captivity.



Rhinos grow to become 3.8 meters long and 1.5 meters tall at the shoulder. They also can weigh up to 3600 pounds. Both the males and the females have horn. They also tend to live 40-45 years in captivity. The gestation period for a rhino is 419 to 476 days. The female reaches the age of sexual maturity after 4-5 years and the males reach it after 7 years. Rhinos live in groups of up to 13.

The rhinos found in the wild today are distributed in eastern and southern Africa. They also tend to live in habitats that are on the verge of woodlands and need a plentiful water supply near their herd. The numbers of rhinos remaining in the wild today are as such: African Black: 2500, white: 7500-8500, asian: 2000, Javen: less then 70, Sumatran: less then 400. Hunting of their horns is their main threat. A Rhino horn is worth its weight in gold. The reason for their declines are overhunting, slow breeding, elephants taking their hunting grounds and the long rearing process for their young.
