These are the greater one horned Rhinos, also called the Indian rhinoceros from Chester Zoo, Cheshire in England. An amazing looking animal, with their armor-plated appearance.
Here they are having a mad moment. First they psych each other out, than it comes the clash!
The Rhinos are listed as Vulnerable on the IUCN Red List. They say there are fewer than 5,000 black rhinos throughout Africa. Poaching remains the biggest threat to rhinos, and is driven by the increase in demand for rhino horn. To my horror, Rhinos aren’t even safe in the zoos, as an article in the news at the moment described how a rhino got shot, killed and the horn stolen in a Paris zoo.
