Rhinos of Kenya & Tanzania Photos
African Rhinoceroses comprise two species. White rhinoceros (Ceratotherium simum) or wide-lipped rhino have square mouths adapted to eating grasses of the plains. Black rhinos (Diceros bicornis) have a prehensile hooked upper lip for eating brush. The black & white names can be misleading because lighting situations can lead to misidentification.
