The white rhino, through much effort by hunters and conservationists, has increased in numbers sufficiently to once again be hunted in South Africa and is a member of the "Big 5". It has a massive body and large head, a short neck and broad chest. The white rhino is much larger than the black rhino, weighing in at as much as two and a half tons. They have a broader and longer head and a prominent hump in the shoulder region.
The southern white rhino lives in Southern Africa. About 98.5% of white rhino occur in just five countries (South Africa, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Kenya and Uganda). Almost at the edge of extinction in the early 20th century, the southern subspecies has made a tremendous comeback. In 2001 it was estimated that there were 11,670 white rhinos in the wild with a further 777 in captivity worldwide, making it the most common Rhino in the world.
