Artist's Description

PLEASE VIEW LARGE – A White Rhinoceros – Ceratotherium simum with a Red-billed Oxpecker – Buphagus erythrorhynchus, about to land on it’s back*

The White Rhino is the third largest land mammal. Massive, stocky, and with a reputation of being not quite as aggressive as the Black Rhino. The two distinctive horns are in fact very densely packed fibers, and materially not really horns. The record horn length is 1.58 m. Bulls, weighing up to 2 000 kg, are larger than cows which weigh up to 1 800 kg. Bulls are 1.8 m at the shoulders. The grey skin is almost hairless. They have a square-shaped, wide mouth. White Rhinos have a hump on the neck.

I photographed this beautiful animal in the Pilanesberg, South Africa
