According to various sites found on the Internet, the largest recorded Indian rhino was 6.5 feet tall and weighed 3,200 kg. Are there specific rhinos that are almost if not equal to the world record sized Indian rhino in any zoos around the world today? I think height makes more of an impression than mass.

In regards to largest captive Indian rhino from what I had read on the net a few years back there was a bull in a German zoo from what I can remember Berlin which was a very large animal. But that may not be the case at this time.

I know in Tierpark Berlin there is a bull named Belur and in West Berlin Zoo a bull named Yohda. A video of Yohda is on YouTube.
I have not seen any videos of Belur from Tierpark. I wonder how tall Yohda is.
