Diet

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

behaviour

Breeding

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.

Conservation

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.
