Inktober DAY 04 by ElbenherzArt Inktober DAY 04 by ElbenherzArt

White Rhinoceros
Population: ca. 19.000
Status: Threatened

"White rhinos are the second largest land mammal.Also known as the square-lipped rhinoceros, white rhinos have a square upper lip with almost no hair. The majority (98,8%) of white rhinos occur in just four countries: South Africa, Namibia, Zimbabwe, and Kenya. They were thought to be extinct in the late 19th century due hunting. A small population of less than 100 individual was discovered in Kwazulu-Natal, South Africa. After more than a century of protection and management, they are now classified as Threatened and exist in protected areas and private game reserves. They still get shot by poachers for their horns."

I decided to dedicate this years inktober mostly to endangered, extinct or enslaved animal species. In November I'll sell some of the originals to raise money for local animal shelters. <3

Traurig, dass sie so bedroht sind - und das hauptsächlich wegen des Aberglaubens um die potenzsteigernde Wirkung ihres Horns...
...dabei könnte man dann genau so gut Fingernägel kauen. Und das alles noch im Zeitalter von Viagra. :( (Sad)
