"Defined by its aggressive disposition, the Black Rhino discourages intruders by charging first and investigating later. Its large horns (made of fibrous keratin) are skillfully used for display or defense against predators. As an herbivorous browser, its prehensile upper lip is perfect for foraging on thorny Acacia branches while kicking up insects preyed upon by its ever-present companions – the cattle egret.  Possessing poor eyesight, the Black Rhino fortunately makes it up with large radar-dish like ears and big nostrils for an excellent sense hearing & smell." - John Banovich
