Q: Why do rhinos have horns?
A: The horns are very well developed in the two species in Africa (black and white rhinos), but much smaller in the three species in Asia (Sumatran with 2 very small horns, Indian and Javan with one horn). The Asian species certainly do not use the horns to fight or to defend themselves, they use their incisors (sharp front teeth for the purpose). The horns have come about in evolution and they had (have) a general function to impress members of the opposite sex. Horns are also used for digging in waterbeds to find water, or to uproot shrubs etc. Some rhinos use the horn to guide their offspring. This is generally the front horn, the second horn does not have a very specific purpose at the moment. We suppose that they had some purpose in the course of evolution.
Hern has been warned by unnamed lawyers that he could get "into a lot of trouble" if someone is harmed by ingesting rhino harm that was poisoned.
Scientists at the National Institute of Immunology (NII) in Delhi have developed a genetic probe that can detect rhino horn even if it is crushed into powder or mixed with something else to evade recognition by wild life inspectors.
``The probe is so powerful that it can not only find out whether the specimen contained rhino horn but also tell whether it came from rhinoceros in Assam or West Bengal,'' said Sher Ali, head of NII's molecular genetics laboratory.
