  1. That's a very interesting notch in the rhinos horn, do you have any idea what that is about? Posted 7 years ago
    1. I think the notch was cut to make the horn invaluable and reduce to potential of causing damage. The image was taken at Dubbo Western Plains Zoo and I noticed that almost all the Rhinos there had similar notches. Posted 7 years ago
      1. Makes sense...thank you! Posted 7 years ago

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.
