I'm not sure the Nidos are based on rhinos... The first stages look more like rabbits than anything, and from there they just become more randomly monstrous (not that it's a bad thing; Nidoking is one of my favorite Gen 1s). But I do see what you're getting at.

Its just a coincidence.

Litleo, Bouffalant, Girafarig, and the Zebstrika line aren't ground types.

Edit: Mightyena as well.

Zebras - Electric
Giraffes - Normal and Psychic
Leopards - Dark

But I do see where you're getting at.

Sandile is based on caimans, a South American crocodile.

Also Elephants, and Crocodiles aren't only found in Africa.
