Abbreviated as rhino, is a group of five extant species of odd-toed ungulates in the family Rhinocerotidae. Two of these species are native to Africa and three to Southern Asia.

Members of the rhinoceros family are characterized by their large size (they are some of the largest remaining megafauna, with all of the species able to reach one tonne or more in weight); as well as by an herbivorous diet; a thick protective skin, 1.5–5 cm thick, formed from layers of collagen positioned in a lattice structure; relatively small brains for mammals this size (400–600 g); and a large horn.

Rhinoceros are killed by humans for their horns, which are bought and sold on the black market, and which are used by some cultures for ornamental or traditional medicinal purposes. East Asia, specifically Vietnam, is the largest market for rhino horns. Rhino horns cost as much as gold on the black market. People grind up the horns and then consume them believing the dust has therapeutic properties. The horns are made of keratin, the same type of protein that makes up hair and fingernails. Both African species and the Sumatran rhinoceros have two horns, while the Indian and Javan rhinoceros have a single horn.

The IUCN Red List identifies three of the species as critically endangered.

Muchas gracias Miguel Ángel! Creo recordar que asististe a la muestra de Artelista con tu obra de Cerberus: light on the gloom Cerberus: light on the gloom by Tatuas . Es así? Saludos!
Tatuas's avatar
De nada! Sí, así es. ¿Eres de artelista y/o participaste, o sólo asististe a la muestra?

Aunque tengo cuenta en artelista solo asisti a la muestra y a una charla sobre tasación :thumbsup:
Tatuas's avatar
Cierto! Estuvimos muy pocos en aquella charla (pensé que asistiría más gente, aunque sólo fuera por curiosidad). Siendo de Artelista, ¿cómo no te presentaste a participar en la muestra? tienes cosas muy buenas...

Por cierto: gracias por la Llama (te lo agradezco también en tu perfil ahora).
