Diceros Bicornis

A massive, three-toed mammal that lives on the Great Plains of Africa. Extremely endangered. Unlike other rhinocerouses, the Black Rhino has two horns, a large, frontal horn, and a sceond, much less developed horn immediately behind it.

Less than 500 of these creatures exist on the entire Earth. They are in short supply due to poaching. The rhino's horn is considered extremely valuable by hunters. In truth, it is just a very large deposit of keratin, which is found in abundnace in the hair of any creature.

These beasts eat roots and other plants that they forage for with their horns. Without their horns, the rhino will die withing a few days because it will not be able to dig up food.
