The Horn Section
Lion Country Safari, Loxahatchee, Florida
These southern white rhinoceros (Ceratotherium simum simum) were living in Lion Country Safari when we met on a family outing.
The white rhinoceros is the largest land animal on the planet, except for elephants, although it barely beats out the hippopotamus for that honor. Males grow to over 13 feet in length (females to 12 feet), not counting the 28" tail, with a shoulder height of around 6 feet. Males average five thousand pounds, with females being 25% less. Interestingly, the larger front horn can grow to five feet in females, but only two feet in males. A rhinoceros can run over thirty miles an hour. It grazes mostly on grass. It relies heavily on its sense of smell; its olfactory passages are larger than its brain.
