The second largest land mammal native to the Asian continent, the Indian rhino is also known as the greater one-horned rhino and the great Indian rhino. Unlike other rhino species, they have shorter, broader horns which tend to grow no larger than 10 inches tall. Hand painted with life-like detail, this model is exceptional as a toy for play, as a teaching aid, or as a piece of décor for your desk or nightstand. Although the Indian rhino’s skin may look like a tough set of armour, it’s actually very soft and flexible! The Indian rhino has greyish-brown skin with a unique black horn. Measuring 5 inches long and 2.75 inches tall, this model is the size of a soda can resting on its side. Sadly, the greatest threat to the Indian rhino is poaching. Because of massive amounts of illegal hunting, the Indian rhino is classified as a vulnerable species by the IUCN. Although their numbers are higher than many other rhino species, the Indian rhino is still considered to be in a very threatened state. Thankfully, black rhinos adapt well to captivity and there are many successful breeding programs in zoos and sanctuaries around the world.
