A Crash of Rhinos

Dull and magnificent at the same time, these agglutinated-haired beasts are one of our favorite odd-toed ungulates. Rhinos everywhere, we salute you, we wish your kind long life and prosperity!*

Interesting trivia: The name "White" Rhino is actually a mis-translation of the Dutch word "wijd". "Wijd" is the Dutch word for "wide", referring to the width of the rhino's mouth.

*Yes, we realize the ratio of

Oh well, that's blogging for ya.
