DescriptionEdit

A mature Sumatran rhino stands about 120–145 centimetres (3.9–4.76 ft) high at the shoulder, has a body length of around 250 centimetres (8.2ft) and weighs 500–800 kilograms (1,100–1,800 lb), though the largest individuals in zoos have been known to weigh as much as 1,000 kilograms (2,200 lb). Like the? African? species, it has two horns. The larger is the nasal horn, typically only 15–25 centimetres (5.9–9.8 in), though the longest recorded specimen was much longer at 81 centimetres (32in).The posterior horn is much smaller, usually less than 10 centimetres (3.9in) long, and often little more than a knob. The larger nasal horn is also known as the anterior horn; the smaller posterior horn as the frontal horn.The horns are dark grey or black in color. The males have larger horns than the females, though the species is not otherwise sexualy dimorphic. The Sumatran rhino lives an estimated 30–45 years in the wild, while the record time in captivity is a female? D. lasiotis? which lived for 32 years and 8 months before dying in the London Zoo in 1900.
