I am looking for information about how to visually age a rhino calve for either black or white rhino. Can anyone advice me some literature or information on this subject? I have unfortunately not been able to find much about the subject besides aging through dentition.
Help much appreciated!

| Hi L Hofstra
The African Rhino Specialist Group have Standardized field rhino-ageing guides. These are used in most countries with African rhino
You can download the picture guides for white and black rhino at my dropbox
ALSO we have a summary of black rhino field aging by tooth wear patterns :

These drawings are perfect, the only photos I could find were terrible quality photos in 2 research papers!
You have made my day!
