‘Then There Was Two'

Happy to share the completed mother and baby black rhino. The full size is 48 x 73cm.
•••••
Black rhinos are distinguished from other rhino species by a few different characteristics. The most obvious being; they have two horns, the front being larger than the back, and the a prehensile (hooked) upper lip, as opposed to the white rhino which has a flatter snout. Their tendency to cover themselves in mud probably helped earn them their name!
•••••
It is estimated that there is between 5,042 - 5,455 black rhinos surviving in the wild today. This is in comparison to around 65,000 across Africa in the 1970s. Intensive anti-poaching and conservation efforts has enabled the population to recover a little, but there is still a lot of work to be done.

I hope you like this piece. Limited edition prints will be available soon with a % going to conservation programs.
