Very nice image & quite lovely , which is hard to do in a zoo setting. Beautiful textures and certainly a horn that would sadly never been seen in the wild. #1464937

The gamekeeper indicated the horn and grown downward because the Rhino kept
pushing it under one of the cross bars on a gate. Over time the constant pushing gradually made the horn curve and grow downward.
