Original text on this topic:
In Zululand the front horn in black rhinoceros is invariably longer than the back. In Hluhluwe-Umfolozi in 1973 only 2,5% of males had anterior horns = posterior, and none shorter (n=120). For females the figures are 14,2% and 5,7% (n=106). For 1985 the figures are for males 0% and 0% (n=58) and females 29,0% and 4,3% (n=69) (Hitchins, 1989).
