HUFFINGTON Post  [May 2015]

↑ Uganda: Rhinos can live for 40-50 years, but many are hacked down in younger life for their horns. Statistics from South African National Parks show that 333 rhinoceros were killed in South Africa in 2010, increasing to 668 by 2012 and over 1,004 in 2013. In some cases rhinos are drugged and their horns removed, while in other instances more than the horn is taken. The IUCN Red List identifies three of the species as critically endangered. Adult rhinoceros have no predators in the wild, other than humans.

White Rhino, Lake Nakuru, Kenya
The white rhinoceros 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 20,400 wild-living animals in 2013, and the much rarer northern white rhinoceros. The northern subspecies has very few remaining, with only five confirmed individuals left [four females and one male], all in captivity.
