The Indian rhinoceros, or greater one-horned rhinoceros, (Rhinoceros unicornis) has a single horn 20 to 60 cm long.
It is nearly as large as the African white rhino. Its thick, silver-brown skin folds into the shoulder, back, and rump, giving it an armored appearance.
Its upper legs and shoulders are covered in wart-like bumps, and it has very little body hair.
Grown males are larger than females in the wild, weighing from 2,5003,200 kg (5,5007,100 lb).
Shoulder height is 1.752.0 m (5.76.6 ft). Females weigh about 1,900 kg (4,200 lb) and are 34 m (9.813 ft) long.
The record-sized specimen was approximately 4,000 kg (8,800 lb).
Indian rhinos once inhabited many areas ranging from Pakistan to Myanmar and maybe even parts of China.
However, because of human influence, they now exist in only several protected areas of India (in Assam, West Bengal,
and a few pairs in Uttar Pradesh) and Nepal, plus a pair in Lal Suhanra National Park in Pakistan reintroduced there from Nepal.
They are confined to the tall grasslands and forests in the foothills of the Himalayas.
Two thirds of the world's Indian rhinoceroses are now confined to the Kaziranga National Park situated in the Golaghat district of Assam, India.
