At least two rhinos are killed every day because of the mistaken belief that their horns cure fevers, blood disorders, cancers, and hangovers. In fact, rhino horns are made of the same material as human fingernails and hair. The place where a rhino horn is of most value? On a rhino. There are five rhinoceros species: black, white, Sumatran, Javan, and greater one-horned. Black rhinos are actually gray in color. The distinguishing factor between black and white rhinos in Africa are their lips; black rhinos have a pointed upper lip that helps them grasp leaves from branches above ground level (browsers), while white rhinos (also gray in color) have a square upper lip that helps them pluck grasses off the ground (grazers).
