Black Rhinos at sunset – Etosha National Park, Namibia. Like all Rhino species, the Black Rhinoceros is critically endangered mainly because of poaching. It is well known that Rhino horn is highly prized in the Orient as an aphrodisiac. A less publicized problem is that Rhino horn is used to fashion ceremonial dagger handles for wealthy men in Yemen, just across the Red Sea from East Africa.

    (sigh) I wish this crazy obsession with rhino horn and sex, daggers, etc would stop. I’ve been aware of this since the mid-80’s when I was in East Africa.

    Anyhow, appreciate you giving it the publicity, and it’s a magnificent image as well!
