The black rhino lives in the tropical, subtropical, grassland, and savanna climates. There are less then 5,ooo black rhinos left in the wild. European hunter have caused the decrease in in the black rhino populations, 5-6 rhinos are killed each day. These rhinos are killed because of there need for horns in medicines and therapeutic treatments. 1,215 rhinos were killed by the asian folks for remedies in 2014. Many rhinos weigh about 1,760-3,080 pounds and stand 5-5.5 feet tall.
