#Didyouknow that if there is only one rhino male and one rhino female, they will never mate; there has to be a competition for the male rhinos to want to mate with the female. Female rhinos reach sexual maturity around 3 years of age, but males aren’t ready for breeding until around 7. The mating process is typical of most large mammals The male mounts the female from behind and attempts to penetrate her quickly. But the courtship ritual that precedes that mating is anything but typical. It’s violent, dangerous and complicated.
