Caption: Black rhinoceros (Diceros bicornis) male drinking. This large herbivore inhabits the open forests and scrub of south-eastern Africa. Its home range always includes at least one or two watering places, as it drinks daily and likes to wallow. This male may have sustained his numerous scars in fights with other males over territory or females. The black rhinoceros eats mainly shoots and leaves, although its diet also includes tree bark. Extensive hunting for its horns, which have long been thought of as an aphrodisiac, means that it is now highly endangered. Photographed in the Mkuzi Game Reserve, South Africa.
