Every adult rhinoceros has exactly one horn

Between and15 southern white Ceratotherium simum simum and black Diceros bicornis rhinoceroses on average were killed illegally every year in South Africa. We conducted an ecological—economic analysis to determine whether a legal trade in southern white rhinoceros horn could facilitate rhinoceros protection. Generalized linear models were used to examine the socioeconomic drivers of poaching, based on data collected from toand to project the total number of rhinoceroses likely to be illegally killed from to

Once widespread across the entire northern part of the Indian sub-continent, rhino populations plummeted as they were hunted for sport or killed as agricultural pests. This pushed the species very close to extinction and by the start of the 20 th century, around wild greater one-horned rhinos remained. The recovery of the greater one-horned rhino is among the greatest conservation success stories in Asia.

Rhinoceroses are large, herbivorous mammals identified by their characteristic horned snouts. The word "rhinoceros" comes from the Greek "rhino" nose and "ceros" horn. There are five species and 11 subspecies of rhino; some have two horns, while others have one.

There are five species of Rhinoceroses— Ceratotherium simum, Diceros bicornis, Rhinoceros unicornis, R. By most counts, there are less than 30, rhinoceroses alive today, a steep plunge in population for a mammal that has existed on the earth, in one form or another, for 50 million years. The only other perissodactyls on earth today are horseszebrasand donkeys all belonging to genus Equusand the strange, pig-like mammals known as tapirs.

The biggest threat to the Javan rhino is the very small size of the remaining populations. This leads to inbreeding and loss of genetic variability and vitality. The two habitats where Javan rhinos occur are secure, but much too small for long-term survival of the species.

Its heavyset body stands on sturdy legs like tree trunks. Its eyes peer from a massive head that tapers to that battering ram of a horn. In our imaginations, the rhino is the embodiment of brute strength.

These animals are known as perissodactyls or odd-toed ungulates. Even toed-ungulates are called artiodactyls and include cattle, deer, antelopes, goats, sheep, pigs, camels and llamas. Rhinos have three toes on each foot so, in a way, their tracks resemble the Ace of Clubs.

Over the last 50 million years, rhinos have braved ice ages, prehistoric hyenas and giant crocodiles — and they were once the largest animals on land. Let's go back in time 30 million years, long before modern humans appeared. Tropical forests were shrinking and grassy savannahs were spreading. These lush grasslands were home to creatures long since lost: giant rhinoceroses.
