A Rhino is a animal mammal that belongs to the family Rhinocerotidae and that is part of the order of periodactyls (placental species whose limbs end in hooves, with odd fingers).

Originating from Africa and of Asia , rhinos stand out for their immense size (they can measure about three meters in length and weigh up to two tons) and for having one or two horns of keratin in his nose

Rhinos have a skin very resistant that, thanks to the superposition of layers of collagen , can reach a thickness of about five centimeters. It is an animal herbivorous It feeds on leaves and roots.

Rhinos usually spend a good part of the day in the Water or in the mud . It is a solitary species, little sociable and territorial. When an animal annoys a rhinoceros, the latter usually reacts fiercely, using its horn.

The most developed sense in the rhinoceros is the smell . his hearing It is also very good, unlike the view . The characteristics of rhinos, however, change according to the species.

The species smallest rhino is the Sumatran rhinoceros : It weighs about 700 kilograms and is usually less than three meters in length. The largest species, on the other hand, are the indian rhinoceros and the white rhinoceros .

It should be noted that, due to the destruction of its habitat and hunting, the rhinoceros is in Danger of Extinction . Many hunters look for their horn as a trophy, while these horns are also used in the medicine Traditional of some nations.

The rhino is the goal of a series of very bloody practices , since around his horn revolve various beliefs that consider it beneficial for health. First, an old tradition from the Asian continent says that it is an exceptional aphrodisiac (a substance that generates sexual excitement and is very stimulating); Although it has been proven on more than one occasion that this statement is absolutely unfounded, the hunting of this animal only seems to be increasing.

One of the worst characteristics of the killing of the rhinoceros, when he is killed to get his horn, is that many hunters do not take the time to take away the lifetime before ripping it off; on the contrary, they have no problem leaving it dying and bleeding for hours . This is due in large part to the fact that in many places it is forbidden to hunt them, and that is why the bloody work must last as short as possible.

As with many of the most unfair and absurd customs of human beings, the consumption of rhinoceros powder (more precisely, his horn) is one of the favorite activities of millionaires. In the parties of the richest people on the planet is not uncommon to share a glass of wine with rhinoceros horn powder , something that certain journalists have christened as a "millionaire cocktail".

Nothing can justify the violence against an innocent being, but in this case the reasons are especially empty and meaningless: according to scientists, ingesting rhino horn powder is not very different from eating one's nails , since the main component of both elements is keratin. Needless to say, no tycoon wanted to be photographed eating nails at a meeting of investors, although it would also be hopeful that they would not show themselves supporting an act of cruelty like this.

Research about effects From the rhinoceros powder they suggest that their consumers do not experience sensations very different from those of ingesting the wine alone. The truth is that no scientific evidence seems to be relevant when the objective is the horn of this peculiar animal.
