Famous rhino dies in Tanzania


A rhino thought to have had the largest family in East Africa has died at the age of 43 in Tanzania. Rajabu, an eastern black rhino, was first sighted in the Ngorongoro conservati­on area in 1979. He roamed the Ngorongoro area freely for more than 14 years before moving to Serengeti National Park. Rajabu was said to have been one of the most productive male rhinos in Tanzania. The eastern black rhino is listed as critically endangered. Its numbers are dangerousl­y low because the animals are often illegally killed for their horn.
