The White Rhinoceros (meaning "nose horn") is a large, gray-colored rhino with two nose horns. It is a large, thick-skinned mammal that roams hot, grassy plains in Africa. The only animals that can kill adult rhinos are people. Poachers sell rhino horns to use in folk medicine. Rhinos are an endangered species because of hunting and the loss of habitat. The scientific name of the White Rhino is Ceratotherium simum (genus and species).

The Horns: The nose horns are made from a hairlike substance that grows throughout the rhino's life. If the horn is broken off, it will grow back. The horns can grow from 1 to 3 inches (2.5 to 8 cm) each year. The longest-known rhino horn was over 5 feet (1.5 m) long!

Anatomy: The White Rhinoceros is up to 6 1/2 feet (2 m) tall at the shoulder and weighs roughly 5,000 pounds (2300 kg). Rhinos are perissodactyls, odd-toed ungulates (hoofed mammals), related to horses.

Diet and Behavior: Rhinos are herbivores (plant-eaters) who graze on grass as they walk. The White Rhinoceros is nocturnal, it is most active at night and during sunrise and sunset. During the hot African day, it lies in mud or dust.
