White Rhinoceros

Ceratotherium simum simum

There are 5 species of rhinoceros, the white rhino being the biggest. It can grow up to 183cm (6’) in height and weigh up to 2.5 tonnes!



Size: 1.5 - 1.8m
Weight: Male 2,000 - 2,5000kg Female 1,500 - 1,700kg



Found in South and East Africa, white rhinos inhabit dry, bushy savannah and lightly wooded regions.



White rhinos are grazers and will feed mainly on short grasses, using only their broad, flexible lips for cropping the stems.



Female white rhinos are pregnant for 16 months and give birth to only 1 offspring. The calves are weaned at 2 years and will stay with their mother until they are 3 years old.



The white rhino was previously hunted almost to extinction, however in the last century numbers have grown. Poaching is again a threat to all rhinos as their horn is in demand for the Asian medicine market and for ceremonial dagger handles in Yemen.
