About Rhino Skin

Most rhinos’ skin is layered with subcutaneous fat used as insulation from both extreme heat in the day, to warmth during cold nights. The Indian rhino’s skin particularly is used to insulate the animal from hot days, and hangs around the creature in large folds.

All rhino skin is very thick, to protect it from damage caused by rough foliage and the occasional predator attack.
