What Eats A Rhinoceros?

What does a rhino eat?

An adult rhino is so large and powerful that few predators would ever think of trying to kill and eat one.

However, a few predators will try to kill and eat a baby rhinoceros. Hyenas sometimes attack little rhinos at night, when the mother rhinos sometimes cannot see well enough to protect them.

But in general, rhinos have very few predators. or natural enemies.

As for the question of what a rhino eats—rhinos are browsers, which means they eat a variety of leaves and other vegetation.
