Meet Macho- One of only 60 Southern Black Rhinos found in AZA accredited zoos in the United States.
Habitat: African Savanna
Macho's Birthday is December 1st
Red Listing: Critically Endangered
Southern Black Rhinos feast on leaves, twigs, shrubs, and herbs. What makes the Southern Black Rhino unique is its prehensile lip. The top lip of their mouth acts like a finger that helps grab leaves and branches.
Although they have poor eyesight, their sense of smell and hearing is excellent. They can swivel their ears in all directions picking up noises from far off in the distance. These territorial animals make their home around watering holes, and self-made mud wallows.
