It’s been so nice seeing some of you back at school! I know those of you at home will continue to have fun…
This week we are looking at a prehistoric mammal that lived long after the dinosaurs, but still a long time ago (from 350 to 10 thousand years ago)! It was called the Woolly Rhinoceros!
Did you know?
- A woolly rhino could weight up to an estimated 2700kg … that’s super heavy!
- A woolly rhino had a powerful hump, just like a camel, to help store fat and survive the very cold winters.
- A wholly rhino’s front horn could reach up to 1.5m long and weigh 15kg. The second horn was a lot shorter.
- A woolly rhino was very hairy, not like todays rhinos, and was covered in a thick reddish brown coat.
Could you do a drawing of a woolly rhino and decorate it? Maybe using some fur or string you could decorate it for fur? What could you fill the horn in with?
