Don’t blame Theodore Roosevelt for killing this majestic beast. Before their population was decimated, the Giant Rhinoceros roamed free destroying farmland and small villages in great swathes across Africa.
There are three recognized species of the giant rhinoceros. The best known, E. sibiricum, was the size of a mammoth and is thought to have borne a large, thick horn on its forehead.
However, if you look closely, you can see that this is actually a triceratops from the film Jurassic Park. Theodore Roosevelt visited the set at the behest of his good friend, Steven Spielberg. That’s not true either, but most people didn’t bother to read this far.
If you would like to raise awareness of the Eurasian Giant Rhino, and figure out which of your friends respond to things based on a headline and a picture, please share this extinct animal’s story.
