Rhinos live on Africa’s grassy plains, where they sometimes gather in groups of as many as a dozen individuals.Under the hot African sun, these animals take cover by lying in the shade. Rhinos are also wallowers. They find a suitable water hole and roll in its mud, coating their skin with a natural bug repellent and sun block.Rhinos have sharp hearing and a keen sense of smell. They may find one another by following the trail of scent each enormous animal leaves behind it on the landscape. Rhinoceros weigh around 3,168 to 7,920 pounds.
