Black rhino are officially extinct today.....gonna get myself a Ryhorn

Unless it's changed a sub-species is extinct, the Western black rhino, but that went extinct in 2011. Googling now just seems to show articles mentioning the Western black rhino, many quoting a UK newspaper the Daily Mail as a source. The Daily Mail is a pretty crappy newspaper when it comes to science/medical articles, often inaccurate. So..seems nothing has happened bar some places realising the sub-species went extinct 2 yrs back, there are still three other sub-species.

Hmmmm....gonna need to translate this.


It was basically a mistake. It's been said it's extinct, but it's not.


TC didn't lie, they're officially extinct. They're just not literally extinct.

Humans suck.


Why do they? They were hunted because allegedly their horns could cure cancer.
Yes I'm prefectly aware it's not the case but go tell that to the uncultured people that did taht to save their family.


I don't think he's talking about that humans. That humans are minority.

This are the humans he's talking about:

TC was probably mistaken. Not lying. I just wanted to clarify.

Untrue. The poachers went after rhino horns for money, but the majority of people who bought the horns did so because they believe the powdered horns serve well as aphrodisiacs.

Eh, it would have happened with or without human intervention. Natural selection exists.


You both are right.

The vast majority of humans are still a stain on this earth, and need to be wiped away. Kappa

It might have happened without Human intervention eventually, But Humans did speed things up.

So would it more appropriate to train a Rhyhorn, or a Rhyperior?
