Rhino and Hippo feel the love Date Night


There are two species of African rhinoceroses: white rhinos and black rhinos. There are also 3 Asian rhino species: great one-horned rhinos, Javan rhinoceroses, and Sumatran rhinos. Black rhinos have been the most imperiled, which begs the question; are black rhinos extinct?

Rhinos are not endemic to Africa, and before they were poached to the brink of extinction, they roamed Europe, Asia, and Africa. There are rock paintings from Niger that show rhinoceroses from 2000 BC. In the 20th century, 500,000 rhinos existed.

By the 1970s, that number had dropped to around 70 thousand individuals.

They’re still under direct threat from poaching and habitat destruction, and almost all of the extant rhinos today live in reserves and national parks. Those that are not within the boundaries of a protected area usually don’t survive.

Today, there are less than 30,000 wild rhinos, and a few subspecies have gone extinct. What about black rhinos? Are any black rhinoceroses extinct?
