About the Rhino

Rhinos are some of the biggest animals in the world! The largest of the five species that call our planet home is the white rhino, which can weigh as much as 30 men. They typically can be found living in Africa, or in the tropical forests and swamps of Asia, depending on the species. For the most part, rhinos are solitary animals and tend to avoid each other. Some species may live in a group called a "crash". They can typically be found sleeping in the shade or wallowing in muddy pools to cool off during the hottest parts of the day. Rhinos love to get muddy, as it protects their skin from the strong sun and keeps bugs away.
