Black Rhinoceros

A black rhino seeks out a good spot for an evening nap. Black rhinos have no natural predators, although fights between rhinos are common, giving the species an estimated combat mortality rate of up to 50%; the highest recorded for any mammal. The scars visible along this young adult male’s flank are tell-tale signs of a past disagreement.
