Rhinos have existed on earth for more than 50 million years, let's not end the line by poaching! Help share the truth: Rhino horn has no medicinal value!

Thanks, I've put the White Rhino in another spotting.

Ishan, I agree with FoTony. It does appear that you have two different species of rhino here. Please remove one of them from here and make it into another spotting with appropriate ID. These guys are too lovely not to share!

It seems that picture 1,4 and 6 Is the black rhino indeed but picture 2,3 and 5 looks more like a white rhino (Ceratotherium simum). The nose holes stand wide on top of a clearly very wide mouth, which is typical for a white rhino.
