All Rhino Species
Rhinoceroses comprise a long-lived and once diverse group with a relatively large fossil record and a few surviving taxa. Skull evolution was studied using living analogues as gauges of intraspecific variation. Analyses were done on 15 extinct and 4 extant genera using 19 measurements of adult cr...

Black Rhino
While ancestral forms of rhinoceros possessed cutting incisor teeth and, in some, canines, these are absent in the black rhinoceros whose dental formula is: I 0/0, C 0/0, P 3/3, m 3/3 = 24 The premolar teeth are molariform, all the cheekteeth being broad-faced and adapted to grinding up the food.

Black Rhino
The skull of this species is less elongated, the supraoccipital crest not extending upwards and backwards to the extent seen in the white rhinoceros. The occipital crest lacks the broad rugose area on top seen in the white rhinoceros and is narrower. The zygomatic arches are heavily built to gi...

White Rhino
The skull is more elongated in this species than in the black rhinoceros, the occipital crest rising high at the back of the skull. The crest has a broad rugose area on top to provide a firm attachment for the huge muscles that actuate the raising and lowering of the heavy head. The high crest ...
