Black Rhinoceros Diorama
Northwestern Slope of Mount Kenya, Kenya
The black rhinoceros (Diceros bicornis) inhabits dry brush and thorn country, where its thick skin provides good protection. These rhinos may reach a weight of three thousand pounds and have a front horn as long as fifty-three inches. Black rhinos are solitary, the mother and young composing the main social unit. After a gestation period of seventeen to eighteen months, a single calf is born and remains with the mother for about two years, not reaching maturity until five to seven years of age. The red-billed tickbird—better known as the red-billed oxpecker—(Buphagus erythrorhyncus), often seen on rhinoceros and other large mammals of the African plains, was long thought to feed on the ticks that infest these animals. However, current thinking suggests that the birds may be more parasitic than beneficial to the animals.
The habitat dioramas are among the greatest treasures of the American Museum of Natural History in New York City, depicting a precise moment in time—a specific location, complete with its indigenous flora and wildlife. The Museum is one of the world’s preeminent scientific, educational, and cultural institutions, drawing millions of visitors each year. Visit amnh.org for more information.
