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!

Hi Smith'sZoo. I was sitting with a ranger while we were watching the animals come drink. The ranger said these two were black rhinos.

Hi Geoffrey, I think this might be a White Rhino. I don't see enough evidence for them to be the Black Rhino. Do you have pics of them before they drank the water to see the mouth better? Also the Black Rhino's horn is slightly lighter than than the color of its skin. Im leaning towards White on this one.
But beautiful magical spot. Wow, they really are whimsical animals!

This is a night shot. Etosha Park in Namibia lights up a couple of water holes to give people a chance to spot rhinos.
