Black and White Rhino

People often do not know which of the two rhinos they are looking at when out on game drive.

It is quite easy to distinguish between the White or Black Rhinoceros.


Both the white and the black Rhino are herbivores.

But the Black Rhinoceros is a browser and the white Rhinoceros is a grazer
