White Rhino The white rhino is the largest mammal after the elephant in Africa, and is now on the brink of extinction. With weighing over three tons and a length of nearly four feet, spend the day grazing peacefully in the more humid savanna safe from predators if we except the man who has had a role in its current sad situation. It usually lives in small herds of six or seven individuals led generally by an adult male animals and are relatively peaceful and confident. During the rut, males are very aggressive towards other individuals of the same sex, expelling from the pack and not allowing them to intervene in the reproductive cycle of the group. One of the main obstacles to the regeneration of their people is their limited ability to multiply, normal, on the other hand, in an animal of this volume. After a gestation period of a year and a half single calf is born, to which the female will have to breastfeed for at least two years, after which you can return to be covered. It is easy to understand that with a low birth rate as the population of white rhinos remain in very poor levels even in areas where it has a high level of protection. The white rhino usually live in open areas of Sudan, Uganda and parts of South Africa. Its horns are highly valued in the East pharmacopoeia.
