Black rhinos' ranges are marked by dung-scattering and urine-spraying. Rhino middens or dung piles, are message stations for the rhinos and are scattered throughout their range. A rhino will deeply sniff the pile, shuffle through it, then defecate in the same spot. Before moving on, the animal will scatter the dung by kicking it backwards in a slow deliberate motion. Both black and white rhino males kick their dung around after defecating, but white rhino females display the same behaviour.

Thanks, GS, and a warm, hearty welcome to the Forum and the Quizzes. But be warned, I'm still trying to figure out which is more addictive - the Forum or the Quizzes. :lol: :lol:



Wildlover! :clap: :clap: :dance: :dance: :thumbs_up:

I leave my faeces in middens on high vantage points. I have exosceletons in my feaces that make them easy to recognize.
