Reader Question

What’s the difference between Northern and Southern White Rhinos?

There are subtle, barely detectable physical differences, as far as measurable components (i.e. skull size, bone length). The male Southern white weighs slightly more than the male Northerns, whereas the Northerns seem taller than the Southerns.

Other than that, it is mainly their range that sets them apart from one another.

There is no  behavioral or habitat difference.
