Awe, I am so sorry to hear that.  Yes, it makes me ill.  Like poor "Satao", one of the oldest elephants in Africa who was killed with a poison dart in 2014.

Awesome photo! We need to save these beautiful creatures before they're gone forever.

Thank you!  Yes, we sure do.  People are trying, but there needs to be more. Progress did occur and then declined again due to poachers :(  

This Rhino's friend, "Lulu" had to be euthanized at the age of 31, in 2014 (at the Zoo) due to incurable cancer.  But there is another Rhino there I believe now.

These guys always have a sort of sad look to them and you don't see many photos of rhinos. Nice shot Sue :aww:

suezn Featured By Owner Mar 8, 2017
Thanks.  Yes, they do.  I think it is their square type of mouth, which allows them to easily chew grass and such.  Makes them look sad.
