Fact of the Day: American Rhino

About five million years ago, the last Rhinoceros species in North American went extinct. Unlike a modern rhinoceros, the teleoceras rhinoceros was a lot like a modern hippopotamus with it probably being semi-aquatic as well.

  6. Didn't know this; it was pretty interesting.
    I actually blame Bush for the rhino extinction.
    Still quite a few RINOS left in Washington, though..
