  1. Oddly, I had no idea about this species. Promoted. Posted 7 years ago
  2. Hat to be a killjoy, but this is not an Indian rhinoceros, but an Africa White rhinocerous. The Indian only has one horn and looks more like an overgrown armadillo than a rhino!
    This will give you an idea...

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.
