What is a rhino horn made of?

It's made of keratin-that's the stuff your hair and nails are made of.

It is not attached to the skull and is not bone.

Although the horn is made from the same substance as hair, the horn itselff is not composed of hair as previously thought.

The horn of the rhinoceros is a dermal one, meaning made from something much like skin. Skin is composed of collagen and elastic fibres. The fibre making up the rhino's horn is a keratin very similar to that making up human hair and chicken's claws.

A rhino's horn is made of keratin. Keratin also makes fingernails, hair, and claws!

Matted/compressed hair Additional Information: The Rhino horns are made up of a fibrous protein material called "keratin". It is a non-mineralized material found on many living mammals, reptiles, birds, and amphibians. The "keratin" that makes up the Rhino horn, is the same material that makes up claws, hooves, nails, and hair. The harder form is usually found in the reptiles, claws, shells, scales, and the birds, beaks, claws, and even feathers. For more details, and examples please see sites listed below.

Rhino horn is a component in Chinese herbal medicine and fetches a price per gram equivilent to gold. So Rhino poaching is a very lucrative activity. And then of course there the joy of getting to kill a large beast. It seems to be something human like to do.
It is because of the horn, which can be sold for huge amounts of money in certain parts of the world. The rhinos are killed or brought down any old how and the horn is hacked off.

While it would be possible to tranquilise them to take the horn off, the poachers haven't got access to that kind of equipment and will use whatever they have. On one extra sad occasion a rhino was found de horned but alive, with a badly shattered skull. It took days to die.
Rhino horn is used in quack Chinese medicines, as a cure for many ailments.
They want them cause they want the calcium from the horns to make medication.

What happens when an elephant and rhino mate?

Elephants and rhinoceroses do not mate. Even if they did, they would not produce offspring. This is because all animal hybrids come from two animals from the same genus, and rhinos are from a different genus than elephants. There are some pairs of different species of animals that can mate, though:

lion+tiger= liger or tigon (depending on the gender of the tiger and the lion)



All animal hybrids are infertile, meaning they cannot mate--even with members of their own species.

And just to be clear, I am Not making this up. You can search any of these hybrids.


What is the difference between black and white rhino's?

The white rhino is larger, and has a square upper lip, while the black rhino has a more pointed, prehensile lip for browsing on the twigs and leaves it eats. The white rhino is a grazer, feeding mainly on grasses.

This is also why you will see the white rhino walking with its head closer to the ground.

The black rhino usually have a more curved back compared to the white, which have a more straight line.

From the behavior can you tell that a mother white rhino always will run behind the calf, and the black rhino will always run in front of the calf. It might be because the black rhino mother then can run down the bush for the calf since they live in thick bushlands.

The white rhino shows social behaviour, while the black rhino is mostly solitary and more aggressive.

In the Afrikaans language white is translated "wide" so the white rhino has a wide snout and a black rhino has a narrower snout.
