Also known as the hook-lipped rhinoceros, the black rhino is a member of the Diceros genus endemic to the woodlands, wetlands, forests, and semi-desert savannah regions of eastern and southern Africa. Despite their massive size, they can run as fast as 30 mph.
Scientific Name:Diceros bicornis
Characteristics:Like all Safari figurines, this black rhino model has been hand painted and crafted with an immaculate attention to detail, making it exceptional as a teaching aid, toy for play, gift, and more. Unlike the white rhino, black rhinos tend to have much larger horns – the largest of which can reach up to 4 feet in height!
Size and Color:Despite their name, black rhinos are predominantly either brown or cement-gray in color, and have pearlescent white horns. 5.75 inches long and 2.5 inches tall, this figurine is a touch larger than soda can resting on its side.
