Wildlife artist, David Shepherd, CBE, FRSA, FRGS, OBE.
Internationally recognized as the world's best wildlife artist.
David Shepherd has at all times felt that he had a duty in the form of conservation towards the world and the animals that inhabit our planet.

Rhinoceroses are some of the largest remaining megafauna: all weigh at least one tonne in adulthood.
They have a herbivorous diet, small brains (400 to 600 g) for mammals of their size, one or two horns, and a thick (1.5 to 5 cm), protective skin formed from layers of collagen positioned in a lattice structure.
They generally eat leafy material, although their ability to ferment food in their hindgut allows them to subsist on more fibrous plant matter when necessary.
Unlike other perissodactyls, the two African species of rhinoceros lack teeth at the front of their mouths; they rely instead on their lips to pluck food.

Rhinoceros are killed by some poachers for their horns, which are bought and sold on the black market, and used by people in some cultures for ornaments or traditional medicine.
East Asia, specifically Vietnam, is the largest market for rhino horns. By weight, rhino horns cost as much as gold on the black market.
People in some cultures believe the horns to have therapeutic properties and they are ground up and the dust consumed.
The horns are made of keratin, the same type of protein that makes up hair and fingernails.
Both African species and the Sumatran rhinoceros have two horns, while the Indian and Javan rhinoceros have a single horn.
The IUCN Red List identifies the black, Javan, and Sumatran rhinoceros as critically endangered.
