• Gi­raffes only need five to 30 min­utes of sleep in a 24-hour pe­riod. They of­ten achieve that in quick naps that may last only a minute or two at a time. The dif­fer­ence be­tween black and white rhino is not in the colour. The Black Rhino has a smaller hump on the back of its neck, a smaller head and, un­like the white rhino, are browsers, eat­ing from higher bushes or trees. The main dif­fer­ence is that the black rhino has a hooked lip as op­posed to a flat-based lip, which is re­lated to their eat­ing habits. An ele­phant’s trunk can grow to be about 2m long and can weigh up to 140kg. The trunk is made up of 100 000 mus­cles.
