Original text on this topic:
White rhinoceros walk slowly, their heads held close to the ground, their nostrils in close contact with it to the extent that, in sandy soil, the broad mouth may mark clearly in the spoor. When in a hurry they move with a graceful trot, timed from a.vehicle as up to 28 km/h, and under stress canter and gallop at up to 40 km/h
