Marco Polo described Rhinos as unicorns in his travels to the Far East. Black Rhinos actually have two horns not one, a longer one at the front and a shorter behind, both of which are made of incredibly densely matted hair. It's horns sit on the Rhino's nose which explains their name which translated in greek means 'Nose horn'.
A group of Rhino's is called 'a crash' which is easy to remember as that's what Rhino's do when they hit something! We lost 98% of the world's Black Rhinos in the 20th Century, mainly due to poaching as people use their horns to make medicines in Asia. By the year 2000 there were less than 100 rhinos left in the wild. The good news is that populations are now increasing in captivity although there are still just a very few of these wonderful animals in the wild.
