[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The picture shows a white rhino’s head and the two horns on its snout, while it was grazing in Nakuru. Despite its name, its skin is not white; the skin is dark grey, not very different from black rhinos. The wide mouth, adapted to cropping large swaths of grass, is one of the differences between black rhinos and white rhinos that are also called square-lipped rhinoceros. White rhino, the largest land animal behind the elephant, is now a near threatened specie.
