Phinda Private Reserve, South Africa
A female white rhino with a massive horn. She was very busy with her mud bath. The absolute tragedy is that a rhino loses their life every 19 hours due to massive poaching in South Africa. The horns are made from keratin, the same material in your hair and fingernails. Yet in some middle eastern and asian countries consider the horn to be magical. The prices of the horns are more than gold. They can save a lot of money by just cutting their hair and fingernails and eating their own!
