Beautiful! I bet that was a great experience! Rhinos have always been one of my favorites to draw during a zoo visit.

It's really disheartening to hear about the huge upturn in Rhino poaching recently and then to hear that the last Javan Rhino in the wild was killed by a poacher. Spread the word, Rhino's aren't medicine!

Wow, another awesome photo post!!! It almost looks like you had a rhino come by a studio for a photo shoot! :)

I'm sure you already have lots of good animal photos and books, but if you are interested, here are some cool books:

They are originally from Japan, and I did the English adaptation design :)
These are actual life-size animals so you can see a lot of details.
Please check them out if you're interested! :)

Cheers,
