Habitat of the woolly rhino
The Woolly Rhino first appeared about 350,000 years ago and died out about 10,000 years ago. Fossil remains have been discovered in Europe and Asia. The habitat was similar to that of the woolly mammoth, but they never made the crossing over the Bering State to America.
The woolly rhino was a herbivore that grazed on grass, small bushes, lichen and moss. With his large molars he ground his food. 30,000-year-old images found in caves in France suggest that the first people hunted woolly rhino.
Length and weight
The woolly rhino could reach a length between 3 and 3.8 meters and weighed no less than 2 to 3 tons. They had 2 horns of which the front one could be up to 1 meter long. That way they could protect themselves against their enemies. The fur consisted of dense, soft under hairs and long, stiff covering hairs.
