Penguin here.

Rhinos have always reminded me of dinosaurs, even though I’m fully aware that the closest living relatives of dinosaurs are birds. Still, I can’t help but feel that a rhinoceros slightly resembles a triceratops. I’m sure I’m not the only one who thinks so. In fact, Blue Bear’s sister, when she was little, used to pronounce “rhinoceros” as “rhinosaurus“!
Anyway, I don’t only like rhinoceroses because they remind me of dinosaurs. I think they have their own kind of charm. I find them incredibly goofy with their very leathery skin, adorable faces and ears. I love this image because the mother’s horn is practically 1/3 of the size of her own baby! I also find it sweet that they’re being so affectionate with each other.
