The Miocene White Rhinoceros is a large animal that appears in a herds. They appear to be grazing but don't let this fool you! Rhinos are territorial and will defend their areas. Great care should be taken if you decide to engage in combat with one of these animals. The Rhino uses their size to cause blunt force trauma and can inflict Injury minor ico.png Injury major ico.png Injury. Being a large animal, it is hard to Intimidate ico 128.png intimidate them even holding weapons. It is possible with a group of hominids to intimidate a rhino but beware if it fails as you will have a large and angry animal coming after you.

If you do decide to attack, use the best weapons you can acquire. It is recommended to use SenseIcon SharpStick.pngSharpened Sticks first, MindIcon Stick.pngSticks next, and as a last resort rocks or hard tools. The more damage you can do from a distance, the better. Rhinos have a relatively large amount of health, taking multiple successful strikes with a Sharpened Stick to kill, though it is possible to get lucky and kill them with one strike.

While large and aggressive, these massive beasts can't instant kill you. They can hurt very you badly but you won't die.

Interactions With Other Animals[]

When different animals get in close proximity to each other, they can attack and kill each other. Animals can fight each other on their own or you can cause them to move nearer to each other to initiate combat. Some of these methods are intimidation to scare them towards another animal, have them chase you and you run past another animal, or perform a dodge and the animal runs towards another animal.

When animals fight each other, a cut-scene will play showing one animal attacking and killing the other. There are a large number of Evolution Feats that deal specifically with trying to cause animals to fight and kill each other.

  • The species found in the game, Ceratotherium neumayri, is the ancestor of the Modern day White Rhinoceros, Ceratotherium simum
  • The Miocene White Rhinoceros is a semi-hostile ancestor of both modern white and black rhinos.
  • In real life, rhinos can be extremely aggressive due to their eye sight. Though they are near sighted, rhinos have an incredible sense of smell which they use to locate food, threats, and mates. Rhinos have been known to charge things such as trees, termite mounds, and dead animals mistaking them for threats such as rivals and predators.
  • In real life, rhinos grow to be 6 feet tall and 11 feet long.
  • The earliest fossil record of white rhinos in Africa can only be up to the Pliocene (Ceratotherium mauritanicum). It is inaccurate that the white rhinos in the game (Ceratotherium neumayri) appeared in the Miocene in Africa.
