[32], White rhinoceroses are found in grassland and savannah habitat. All other rhinoceros species are smaller than this when they are born. Teeth of fossils assigned to Ceratotherium found at Makapansgat in South Africa were analysed for carbon isotopes and the researchers concluded that these animals consumed more than 30% browse in their diet, suggesting that these are not the fossils of the extant Ceratotherium simum which only eats grass. Initially, six northern white rhinoceros lived in the Dvůr Králové Zoo in the Czech Republic. Shoulder height: 1.5 -1.8 m 5.
