A recent news item should be given special attention to animal enthusiasts, especially those concerned with endangered animals. That’s the white rhino “Sudan” now living in Kenya Nature Reserve. It’s the last male rhino in the world. The Sudan has not had a son and a half of its children. If it can’t leave any offspring, our children will only know the white rhino in textbooks. It’s planted.
Now let’s get to know the difference between white rhino and black rhino. In fact, black rhinos are not named because of their body color. Black rhinos are also gray-white. The most intuitive difference between them is that black rhinos are much smaller than white rhinos. White rhinos are the second largest terrestrial animals on the planet after elephants. In nature, they have no natural enemies – except humans. White rhinoceros is also called rhinoceros cunea, which is one of the obvious characteristics of black rhinoceros and white rhinoceros respectively. Another theory is that the Dutch, the earliest European colonizer who immigrated to southern Africa, distinguished the black rhinoceros with wide lips from the black rhinoceros with sharp lips. In Dutch, “wide” wrote “wijd”, and then English speakers used “wijd”. ” It was misinterpreted as “white”, so the white rhino got its name.
White rhinoceros lives on the African savannah. This large herbivore eats half of the day, has a third of the rest time and does other things. So it seems that their way of life is really “unenterprising”. Like other rhinos, they like to stay in mud to lower their body temperature. Adult white rhinos weigh more than 3,000 kilograms, but don’t underestimate them because of their clumsy size. They can also run at speeds of more than 50 kilometers per hour when threatened.
No matter how valuable rhino horns are, they have become the main culprits of rhino endangerment. Sudan is the only male white rhino on the planet, and probably the last generation of white rhinos. If these “valuable” rhino horns are in exchange for the extinction of a species, then we don’t want this kind of wealth. When we refuse to use luxury goods made from precious animals, we leave a rich and colorful world for our future generations.
