Indian One horned Rhino

Wild India: Indian One horned rhino

The Indian One Horned Rhino is now mainly found in Kaziranga National Park in Assam. It is also found in Jaldapara. A few had been shifted to Dudhwa National Park more than two decades ago.

Highly endangered because of poaching. It's horn is mistakenly believed to cure a host of problems including virility in men. Sadly every year they fall prey to poachers bullets.
