Southern white rhinos are native to eastern and southern Africa. These massive animals can stand more than 6 feet at the shoulder and weigh as much as 5,000 pounds. Black rhinos are found in bushy plains, rugged hills, and scrublands in isolated areas of Central and South Africa. Black rhinos also are known as the prehensile, or hook-lip, rhinos. This lip is a special tool used for browsing on leaves and twigs.
