African Rhinoceros

The African Rhinoceros, (Diceros bicornis) also known as the Black Rhinoceros, is one of the five species of rhinoceros that exist in the world and is critically endangered due to poaching and habitat loss and is a herbivorous mammal. It inhabits the savannah and tropical forest regions of Africa.

The African rhinoceros is a large animal, it can measure up to 1.60 meters tall at the shoulder and weigh between 800 and 1,400 kilograms. Its body is robust and covered in thick, wrinkled skin that protects it from bumps and scratches. It has two horns on its nose, the largest can measure up to 1.20 meters and is used for defense and territorial combat.

In its natural habitat, the African Rhinoceros is a solitary and territorial animal. It prefers to live in areas with a low density of trees, but with enough vegetation for food. Its diet is based on leaves, branches and fruits from trees, and it can consume up to 50 kilograms of food per day.

In the Anthropocene, the time in which we find ourselves, the African Rhinoceros has been severely affected by human activity. Poaching for their horns, which are considered a status symbol and used in traditional medicine in some Asian countries, has led to a dramatic decline in their population. In addition, habitat loss due to agricultural and urban expansion has also affected their survival.

Despite these threats, various measures have been implemented to protect the African Rhino. The conservation of its habitat, the fight against poaching and the illegal trade in its horns, and captive breeding are some of the strategies used to ensure the survival of this species. However, their future is still uncertain and largely depends on people's commitment to protect them and ensure that they can continue to play their important role in African ecosystems.

According to the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), it is estimated that there are fewer than 5,500 black rhinos on the entire African continent.
