The Rhinoceros (or rhino) is a group of large odd-toed ungulates, living in sub-saharan Africa, India, and parts of South East Asia. They are generally, large solitary grey creatures, and are herbivores, recognizable by their large facial horns. A large white rhinoceros, can weigh well over a tonne.

Adventures with rhinocerosesEdit

Margaret Trappe once wrote on the rump of a rhinoceros.


Indiana Jones and Meto observe a rhinoceros.

Indiana Jones and his friend Meto saw a rhinoceros while they trekked across the British East African savannah during Henry Jones's world lecture tour. The sight of two of the seven rhinoceros Theodore Roosevelt had shot on a hunting expedition was an early lesson in conservation for the younger Jones.

Jones crossed paths with a rhinoceros again in 1912, while trying to escape from the gang led by Fedora, with the Cross of Coronado on board a circus train. After Jones escaped the reptile car, he was confronted by Roscoe, on board a car containing a captive African rhino for the circus. Jones fought Roscoe, but their fighting caused a lantern to fall inside the car, which agitated the rhino. It subsequently tore its horn through the ceiling of the car, causing both Roscoe and Jones to back off.
