Congratulations! This spotting has been featured as a Project NOAH Fact of the Day:

Project NOAH Fact of the Day: The largest of the Asian rhino species, the Indian rhino is increasing in numbers in India thanks to careful management and protection. Unfortunately populations are fragmented and habitat is degraded in some areas. With this species confined to only 10 or fewer sites, this species still remains endangered.

It uses its semi-prehensile upper lip to help gather the grasses and other vegetation that make up its diet.
