Rhinoceros Games By Kaye Menner

I captured this image of these amazing white rhinoceros at Western Plains Zoo, Dubbo, New South Wales, Australia just recently.
They were brilliant to watch and appeared to be having fun playing their rhinoceros games.

The white rhinoceros or square-lipped rhinoceros (Ceratotherium simum) is the largest extant species of rhinoceros. It has a wide mouth used for grazing and is the most social of all rhino species. The white rhinoceros consists of two subspecies: the southern white rhinoceros, with an estimated 19,682–21,077 wild-living animals in the year 2015, and the much rarer northern white rhinoceros. The northern subspecies has very few remaining individuals, with only two confirmed left in 2018 (two females; Fatu, 18 and Najin, 29), both in captivity.
White rhinos are the second largest land mammal and their name comes from the Afrikaan's, a West Germanic language, word “weit” which means wide and refers to the animal's mouth. ... They are the only of the five rhino species that are not endangered. White rhinos have complex social structures.
