Even though the Black rhino is called the black rhino it is more of a brownish color not black. About 3600 black rhinos live today. Hopefully that number will go up. The most fascinating part to me is the rhinos horns.They have two horns on the skull that are made of keratin with the larger front horn typically 50 cm (20 in) long, exceptionally up to 140 cm (55 in). The longest known horn measured nearly 1.5 m (4.9 ft) in length. That is taller than me. The black rhino is a herbivore so it eats leafy plants,thorny bushes,branches,shoots, and fruit.
