Original text on this topic:
The accompanying photograph represents an African rhinoceros horn, belonging to Hon. Walter Rothschild, which seems to have the characters of both Rhinoceros simus and Rhinoceros bicornis. Three inches from its base the horn has almost a flat front surface like simus, but within 2 feet of the tip is circular like bicornis; length in front curve 43 ? inches, circumference at base 22 inches, weight 10 lb. This specimen was obtained by the late Mr Doggett on his last trip during the Uganda Boundary Commission.
