Black Rhino are smaller and less common than the White Rhino. Adult males are territorial and solitary, but females can be semi-social if there are enough resources.
Black Rhino are browsers, feeding on leaves, bark, twigs and branches using their prehensile upper lip to pick and break these off trees and shrubs.
Conservation efforts have seen populations of Black Rhino increase in recent times, but habitat loss and especially poaching are still major threats to the survival of Black Rhino.
