Rhinoceros, the white Rhino, being sadly poached almost daily.

Rhinoceros often abbreviated as rhino.

Rhinos are killed by humans for their horns, which are bought and sold on the black market, used by some cultures for ornamental or (pseudo-scientific) medicinal purposes. The horns are of the same type of protein that makes up hair and fingernails Both African species and the Sumatran’s have two horns, while the Indian and Javan have a single horn.

The IUCN Red List identifies three of the species as critically endangered.

These are Photos taken In Kruger National Park as well as in the Kalahari.
