Black Rhino I came across this rhino on a morning drive in Etosha National Park in Namibia.  A number of black rhinos have been poached recently in Namibia, including within the park boundaries.  However, I was fortunate to see two of them in three days, including this one just as the sun was coming up.

The black rhinoceros or hook-lipped rhinoceros, is a species of rhinoceros, native to the eastern and central areas of Africa including Kenya, Tanzania, Cameroon, South Africa, Namibia, Zimbabwe, and Angola. Although the rhino was referred to as ''black'', it is actually more of a grey/brown/white color in appearance.

The other African rhinoceros is the white rhinoceros. These common names are misleading, as those two species are not really distinguishable by color. The word ''white''.. more
