Some cool facts about rhinos:
The name rhinoceros comes from two Greek words: "rhino" meaning nose and "ceros" meaning horn.
A group of rhinos is called a crash.
Rhinos love rolling around in mud. When it’s dry, the mud protects their skin from the hot sun and pesky insects.
Rhinos mark their territory with poop! These dung heaps are called "middens".
Because of their huge armor-like bodies, rhinos have no natural predators (besides humans, unfortunately. 😔)
Rhinos can weigh up to 5100 lbs (2 tons) and can run up to 31 miles per hour.
These big beasts have terrible sight but excellent hearing.
There are only about 29,000 left in the wild.
