black rhino- critically endangered.

black rhinoceros (Diceros bicornis)
A black rhino browses on a shrub. Also called hook-lipped rhinoceros, the lips come to a tip and allow for stripping branches and selective browsing. Black rhino eat over 200 species of bushes, trees and shrubs. They numbered about 100,000 in the 1960's and now are reduced by poaching to 5,300, critically endangered. The western black rhino was declared extinct in 2011. Only four northern black rhino remain alive - the rest poached into oblivion. One rhino is on the average slaughtered every 6 hours to satisfy demand among the ignorant inhabitants of Vietnam and China, who imagine powdered rhino horn keratin (keratin= same stuff as toenails and fingernails) to enhance male performance AND cure cancer. Having driven the price of illegal, ineffective rhino horn as high as $60,000/kg, these are clearly among the world's stupidest people. We must unite to protect the remaining rhino from them!!!
