Whilst "Africa" has a very active "Rhino" thread, couldn't find one for "Rhino" outside Africa, so here's a very old couple of blurry photos from the bottom of the box. I took this photo 32 years ago in Chitwan NP Nepal. Nice to see that numbers have continued to increase since then.

Thanks @elefromoz - Chitwan NP is on my list of places to visit and your photos help whet my appetite.

Chitwan NP has now over 500 One horned Rhinos. A real stronghold for them and you are guaranteed to see some.

Sorry for the bad video quality but it was shoot in the days when the quality wasn´t the best :)

@Antee I edited the link so it would embed directly into the post.

Chitwan is a pretty magical place.  I've had good luck with Sloth Bear there as well as rhino.

Matt

I had it embedded at first but i don´t like the autoplay and therefore I changed it to a link.

No point of having autoplay when you are a bit down in the thread. Half of the movie had already played when you are there... 

I have tried so hard to remove autoplay but it seems impossible.... 
Help me if you can.
