How to Celebrate
You can celebrate this day by studying or thinking about the mighty Rhinoceros. You can also visit one in a zoo or watch a documentary on them. Here are some facts to get you started:
- Rhinos are native to Africa and Southern Asia
- Rhinos can weigh one metric ton or more
- Rhinos are herbivores
- African Rhinos lack front teeth
- Rhinos are killed for their horns which are sold on the black market
- African Rhinos have two horns, while the others have only one
- The Javan and Sumatran Rhinos are considered Critically Endangered
To celebrate this day, we selected a 2011 Rhino’s Natural Energy & Fruit Drink Can from Germany. On it is a picture of a Rhino and the background is split between purple and white.
Happy Save the Rhino Day (5/1)!
