Indian Rhinoceros

The Great Indian Rhinoceros is located in the Indomalaya Outdoor Exhibit of the Toronto Zoo

 

The Great Indian Rhinoceros [Rhinoceros unicornis] is also known as the “Greater One-horned Rhinoceros” and the “Asian One-horned Rhinoceros”.  It belongs to the Rhinocerotidae family.  There are five species of rhino, two of which are African and three, Asian.  The name “rhinoceros” comes from the Green meaning rhino (nose) and ceros (horn).

Rhinos, as they are called in short, typically weigh between 3,500 to 7,700 pounds and are the fourth largest land animals.  They have thick, silver-brown skin with little body hair except on their eyelashes, ear fringes and tail.  They often develop very thick neck folds.  In the wild, rhinos may live up to about 35 years, while in captivity, they average about 40 years.  They are herbivores, which means they like to eat plants.  They are also solitary creatures which means that after mating, the males and females go their separate ways.

The Rhino below has worn down his horns by rubbing it against doors and walls at the zoo, however, it does so also against trees in the wild.  The horn is made of thousands of strands of keratin, which is the same material that makes up our fingernails and hair.  Both male and female rhino’s have a single black horn.  Newborn young do not have horns, in fact, the horn starts to show only after about the age of six years.

Did you know...  

that a Rhinoceros has a keen sense of smell and can smell objects up to a kilometer away?  Watch out, its powerful legs can charge up to 64 km an hour!

Did you know... 

that while the Rhinoceros in the images below look like it has a tough armour-like skin, it is actually very sensitive to sunburn and biting insects?  This is why Rihnos are often found wallowing in mud.

Diceros bicornis michaeli is commonly known as the Eastern Black Rhinoceros or the East African Black Rhino.  Eastern Blacks are about 12 feet long and five feet high.  They weigh 1,800 to 3,000 pounds.

This species is native to Eastern Africa and lives in transitional zones between grasslands and forests.  It is listed as a critically endangered species.  Populations are declining due to [poaching (hunting) for their horns.  Some countries consider rhino horns made into dagger handles as a symbol of wealth.

Notice the two horns made of keratin.  The forward horn is longer growing to up to 28 inches and is used for defense.  Thick skin protects the rhino from shrubbery and thorns.  Thick, padded feet absorb shocks.

We Are All God's
Creatures

 

 

 

 

"If all the beasts 
were gone,
 men would die from 
a great loneliness 
of spirit, 
for whatever happens 
to the beasts 
also happens to the man.  
All things are connected.  Whatever befalls 
the Earth 
befalls the sons 
of the Earth."

~ Chief Seattle 
of the Suquamish Tribe,
 letter to 
President 
Franklin Pierce ~

 

 

 

 

 

 

"Life is as dear 
to a mute creature 
as it is to man.  
Just as one wants happiness 
and fears pain, 
just as one wants 
to live 
and not die, 
so do other creatures."

~ His Holiness 
The Dalai Lama ~

 

 

 

"If you have men 
who will exclude 
any of God's creatures 
from the shelter 
of compassion and pity, 
you will have men 
who will deal likewise 
with their fellow men."

~ St. Francis of Assisi ~

 

 

 

 

"The worst sin 
towards our fellow creatures 
is not to hate them,
 but to be indifferent to them.  that's the essence 
of inhumanity."

~ George Bernard 
Shaw ~

 

 

"A bird does not sing 
because it has an answer. 
 It sings because 
it has a song."

~ Chinese Proverb ~
