Hey, lt.
I did fairly well today, making up for yesterday's disaster.
Okay on #s 1, 3, 4, 5, & 7. But on #4, is there a rhino with more than 1 horn? Only knew of this 1.

Hey, QS !
the Sumatran or Asiatic hairy rhinoceros (Dicerorhinus sumatrensis), and the African black rhinoceros (Diceros bicornis) both sport two horns.

The trick I learned at the San Diego Wild Animal Park in March was that two fingers pointed down form an "A", for African (and I guess it works with Asian as well), showing that the African rhino has two horns. One finger pointed up, makes an "I" for Indian rhino.
