A rhinoceros was a natural herbivorous animal found in warm plains.[2]


They had big, barreled chests with stout legs and thick-skin, which was usually gray in color. They had one to three horns on their snouts that they used to impale their opponents.[citation needed]


These creatures were known to be short-tempered and attacked anything they perceived as a threat. Rhinos were reputed to particularly hate fire, and would travel miles in an effort to stomp out any fire within its territory.[citation needed]

Rhinoceros hide was used to make an armor known as chia in Kara-Tur.[3]
