Salvador Dali & Rhinoceros

The rhino is a homely beast
For human eyes he's not a feast
Farewell, farewell you old rhinoceros
I'll stare at something less prepoceros
--Ogden Nash

FreakingArt.com's take on Durer's Rhino

Rhinoceros come in five different species: Black, White, Indian, Javan, Samatran. Two native to Africa and three to Southeast Asia. Indian and Javan varieties have one horn the Black, White and Samatran have two. All are herbivores and even the smallest can reach well over a ton in weight.
