Wild and Free Foundation - Rhinos go about their lives in many different ways

The rhino is one of the most iconic animals on earth. Unfortunately, they are an endangered species and have been hunted for their horns to create 'medicine' that does more harm than good. With only approximately 30,000 left in the wild due to poaching and habitat loss it's important to learn how these beautiful creatures live! For instance, males (called bulls) prefer being left alone unless searching for a female to mate with; while females (called cows) stay around all of the time because they need help raising calves. Bulls map out territory by using poop as well as other pongs called dung piles which act like signals between each other
