It is. Keeps the business up. The word goes that a rhino horn is worth a million dollars? Seriously?

A gentleman in a shop on Blvd St-Germain told me there is a rhino gang operating in France and Europe. They don’t poach, they steal old rhino heads hunted years ago and sell the horn!

They are endangered because of poaching and lost of habitat so not much can be done if that continues m

Love your animal series as usual. Need to think what this tiny fellow might tell Felicity.
Now, 1,500? That’s way too low for survival of the species. Will man(un)kind never learn? 😦
