The largest species of rhinoceros in the world, the white rhinoceros, or rhino for short, is a large horned mammal endemic to the southern half of Africa. White rhinos are actually a dark gray, and many believe the name “white” actually comes from a mistaken translation.

  • Characteristics: Capturing the burly body, dark gray skin, and famous pearlescent white horn, this professionally sculpted figurine is truly life-like. If you look closely at the tail and ears, you can see they have the same type of hair as humans!
  • Size and Color: Standing 12.5 inches long, 3.5 inches wide, and 5.6 inches tall, our rhino statuette is half an inch longer than a standard American rule, and a touch wider and taller than a soda can.

History:

The white rhino is split into two subspecies: the southern and the northern white rhino. Due to the large differences in where they live and the relative the habitat loss in each region, the southern white rhino is considered near threatened= with over 20,000 individuals living in the wild. However, the northern white rhino is critically endangered, with only 3 members left in captivity. All 3 are kept in the same preserve with hopes of breeding and increasing their population in the near future.
