Not just any rhino

On an early morning game drive, we were fortunate enough to find a rhino, and a very special one at that. There are few black rhino left in the world, far less than white rhino, so every time we see one it is very exciting indeed. 

The biggest clues that it is a black rhino: it has a pointed lip instead of a flat lip, its head is held up as it is a browser, and it is generally a little bit smaller than a white rhino. There is no difference in colour, unless they have been rolling in different shades of mud.
