Caption

Black rhinoceros (Diceros bicornis) calf. A female black rhinoceros gives birth to one baby every three years, after a gestation period of around 18 months. The black rhinoceros is a large herbivore that inhabits the open forests and scrub of south-eastern Africa. It is a solitary, territorial animal, its territory always including at least one waterhole, as it is fond of wallowing. It 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 Augrabies Falls National Park, South Africa.
