The black rhinos of Namibia are unique. Unlike their cousins in other countries, they thrive in the harsh, dry deserts of Namibia.
*They have evolved to survive without water for two to three days.
*They have developed resistance to the toxic chemicals in plants native to the area.
*Their ranges are far greater than other black rhinos; spanning nearly 200 sq km (50,000 acres) which is twice as large as the rhinos in South Africa. A few individuals have even been reported to have ranges of over 700 sq km (173,000 acres)!
*Namibian black rhinos make up about a third of the world’s remaining rhino population.
