Description

This new addition to the popular Do You Know series tells young naturalists everything they ever wanted to know about rhinos:
— The record for the longest horn is held by a white rhinoceros. Its horn was 1.66 metres (5.2 feet) long.

— A broken horn will regrow in two to three years. Just like our nails and hair, a rhinoceros horn is made of keratin.

— The rhinoceros is an endangered species. There are only about 8,000 individuals left in the world.

Aside from his pets and the fact that he still practices veterinary medicine, Michel Quintin is now content to observe deer, foxes, wild turkeys and other animals that come to the window of his house the country. Nature, as you may have guessed, is his greatest source of inspiration.
