Silhouette (side-view) of a white rhinoceros (Ceratotherium simum), showing the horns in all their majesty. Sadly, de-horning (removal of the horn for conservation purposes; to reduce poaching risk) means that such a dramatic sight (a rhino with its horn) is becoming a rarity.
This image was published in The Conversation, Only a Jurassic Park-style intervention can now save the northern white rhino, an article considering the future of the northern white rhinoceros. What does the future hold?
