Rhino knowledge.

There are 5 types of rhinoceros currently on earth and all of them are endangered or protected species at this time and the two most common species of rhinoceros are the “white” and “black” and both inhabit the savanna grasslands of Africa.

▼ The “white” rhinoceros is 3 to 4 meters long and weighs approximately 2 tons!

▼ The “black” rhinoceroses is slightly smaller at less than 3 meters in length and weighs approximately 1 ton.

These magnificent animals are actually neither “white” or “black” but are one of the most amazing and endangered animals as they are targets for “illegal poaching” of their horns. I hope that these animals will remain and flourish in the wild!
