As part of 1111′s A-Z of Creatures. R is for Rhinoceros. Three of the five species of rhino are critically endangered. Rhinos are sadly hunted for their horns; that’s right people, apparently they have magical powers. Yeah, sure, so does my ‘horn’.
For the rhino at least, their horns are an important tool. They use them for defense, for digging, attracting mates (the word is that bigger is better), steering young, and moving poop ಠ_ಠ
