East African Rhino – Masai Mara Photography

The eastern black rhinoceros is also known as the East African black rhinoceros. It is a subspecies of the black rhinoceros. Its numbers are very low due to poaching for its horn and it is listed as critically endangered. The eastern black rhino is distinguishable from the southern subspecies as it has a longer, leaner, and more curved horn. Its skin is also very grooved.  They are browsers and are usually found in highland forest and savanna habitat.

We found the solo Rhino on the last day of our trip, and it was quite an effort by Masai drivers (who were communicating with every other driver in the region) to track it to down.   I was one of the few lucky folks to get a head-on shot of the black Rhino
