No. The color is basically muddy grey. The main differences between the white and black rhino is that the black rhino is a bit smaller and has pointed lips. … It is fairly certain that the White Rhino became called so through misunderstanding its name in Afrikaans. In Afrikaans "wide" (referring to its wide, flat mouth) sounds fairly similar to "white", so in English it became the white rhino. Whether the other rhino is actually darker, or got called "black" just because of symmetry reasons, no noe really knows.
The Black Rhino eats, drinks, mates, gives birth, fights etc...
All rhinos are herbivores, plant eaters. No rhino would ever eatAnother rhino.
They aren'r really, it's all down to a messed-up translation. In Africa there are two species of rhino, one with a wide mouth and one with a pointy mouth. Wide in afrikaans is… something like "weit", which sounds like white. From there someone came up with the reasoning that "OK, we have two species. If one is is white, the the other must be black". The black rhino might be a tad darker, but in reality basically they're both a kind of muddy grey. A popular theory of the origins of the name "White Rhinoceros" is a mistranslation from Dutch to English. The English word "white" is said to have been derived by mistranslation of the Dutch word "wijd", which means "wide" in English. The word "wide" refers to the width of the rhinoceros' mouth. So early English-speaking settlers in South Africa misinterpreted the "wijd" for "white" and the rhino with the wide mouth ended up being called the White Rhino and the other one, with the narrow pointed mouth, was called the Black Rhinoceros There is no confirmed explanation for why Black Rhinos are called black, but the theory is that since black rhinos are prone to wallowing, when people saw them, coated in dark mud, they thought that they were black in colour. Their actually skin colour is dark grey
Poachers hunted this species to near extinction, for their horn, which was used in quack medicines, and brought an enormous price. The West African race of the black rhino was… recently declared extinct in the wild, but other races are slowly increasing, the wild populatipn was over 4000 in 2008.
The best thing to do is stop poulterer to stop killing them for there horns but if that poulterer good to do that then here are fact black rhinos can kill in the night & the… early morning.
It is a Critically endangered species, and there are about 3,600 wild Black Rhinos left in Africa.
Leave it to rot usually. It's nowhere near as valuable as the horn, and a lot more difficult to carry around, treat and store.
we dont know how often they eat so maby you should go and look it up some where elst.
most likely the desert and some area with little water and many animals that would be my best guess
Poachers have almost eliminated rhinos from the earth. Black and white rhinos are now considered endangered. 90% of the white rhinos were poached in the last 10 years.
Yes, but they're some ways apart. The white Rhino is a grazer, feeds mainly on grass whlie the black rhino is a browser and feed mainly on leaves and branches.

The northern white rhino may be extinct in the wild, but there are nearly 18000 southern white rhinos. The black rhino still exists in small populations, maybe 1000 in the wil…d.
