Test Your Rhino IQ

How many species of rhinos exist today?
There are five species of rhinos: Black rhinos and White rhinos are native to Africa. The Javan, Sumatran, and Indian rhinos are found in Asia.

What do you call a herd of rhinos?
A herd of rhinos is called a crash.

How did the white rhino get its’ name?
A theory claims that the name "White" rhino was actually a mistake, or rather a mistranslation of the word "wijd" ("wide" in Dutch), referring to their square upper lip, differentiating them from the Black rhino which has a hooked upper lip.

How many horns do rhinos have?
Both species of African rhinos and the Sumatran rhino have two horns, while the Indian and Javan rhinos have a single horn. The horns of a rhinoceros are made of keratin, the same protein that makes up human hair and fingernails.

How much do rhinos weigh?
The smallest species, the Sumatran rhino, weighs in around 1,500 pounds while the largest species, the White rhino can weigh in excess of 7,500 pounds.
