Supposedly, if you believe those newfangled young scholars who study strange subjects like zoology, the three-horned rhinoceros is a relative of the elephant and the mammoth. But look at this animal! No trunk! The essential feature of the animals are the 3 horns. The front horn grows from the nasal bone, the middle and the rear horn from the fore skull.
Three-horned rhinos have a massive body and short, thick legs. Each foot has three toes, each ending in broad hooves. The skin is thick and grey or brown in colour. In the species of the barbarian lands, the skin is strongly folded at the base of the neck and legs, so that it looks as if the animals are armoured. Rhinos have poor eyesight, but this disadvantage is compensated for by a keen sense of smell and very good hearing. The male animals do not have a scrotum; the testicles are located inside the body.
Rhinos are solitary animals, but they can also organise themselves into small groups.
