MOST ENDANGERED MAMMAL WHITE RHINO
so known as the square lipped rhinoceros, white rhinos have a square upper lip with almost no hair.
As of March 2018, there are only two rhinos of the northern white rhino left, both of which are female. They live in the Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Kenya and are protected round-the-clock by armed guards
The majority (98.8%) of the southern white rhinos occur in just four countries: South Africa, Namibia, Zimbabwe, and Kenya.
Southern white rhinos were thought to be extinct in the late 19th century, but in 1895a small population of less than 100 individuals was discovered in Kwazulu-Natal, South Africa.
The home range for adult females can be more than seven times l rger, depending orn habitat quality and population density
New genetic analysis of white rhino populations- -suggests it could be possible to reseue the -_ critically endangered northern white rhinoceros from extinction, using the genes of its less threatened southern cousin.
