The black rhinoceros (Diceros bicornis) inhabits dry brush and thorn country, where its thick skin provides good protection. These rhinos may reach a weight of three thousand pounds and have a front horn as long as fifty-three inches. Black rhinos are solitary, the mother and young composing the main social unit. After a gestation period of seventeen to eighteen months, a single calf is born and remains with the mother for about two years, not reaching maturity until five to seven years of age. The red-billed tickbird—better known as the red-billed oxpecker—(Buphagus erythrorhyncus), often seen on rhinoceros and other large mammals of the African plains, was long thought to feed on the ticks that infest these animals. However, current thinking suggests that the birds may be more parasitic than beneficial to the animals.
Thoughtfully conceived and engagingly intricate, this interlocking jigsaw puzzle combines superb color reproduction and sturdy construction to delight generations of novice and veteran puzzleworkers.
