one-horned rhinos inhabit floodplains, swampy areas and
grasslands. They are primarily grazers, but also eat a large variety
of plants, bushes, fruits and aquatic plants. Rhinos will walk over
tall plants and grasses, causing them to bend under the weight of
their chest and head to mouth level where they can more easily bite
Of all five
species of rhino, the greater one-horned rhinos are the most aquatic
and enjoy spending time in water. They will even swim and forage in
the water, eating plants that are submerged or floating. They have a
prehensile lip that helps grab branches, leaves and bunches of grass
and pulls them into their mouth.
one-horned rhino have two long, sharp incisors in their bottom
jaw. These are used less for eating and more for fighting and
inflicting wounds on opponents. They also have three premolars and
three molars on each side of both their top and bottom jaw to chew
their vegetation into digestible pieces.
