White rhino Over a hundred killed for their horns in South Africa this year already. At this reserve they remove the horns on all their rhinos in an effort to keep them safe. So sad.<br />

The white rhinoceros or square-lipped rhinoceros is the largest extant species of rhinoceros. It has a wide mouth used for grazing and is the most social of all rhino species. The white rhinoceros consists of two subspecies: the southern white rhinoceros, with an estimated 17,460 wild-living animals at the end of 2007, and the much rarer northern white rhinoceros.
