  1. Good choice for B&W. I identified it as a black rhino, I hope that's correct? Posted 8 years ago
  2. I believe that is correct. I felt black and white helped to bring out the detail in the skin. If you look closely enough, it looks like the rhino is grinning! Posted 8 years ago

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
