© National Geographic Society 4 To Charge or Not to Charge? An Irate Wallower Thinks It Over A grown male rhino may weigh two tons and stand six feet high at the shoulder. Elephants are terrified by its headlong rush.

Twins are almost never seen. This spot is a bil; monsoon rains will turn it from a marshy, flower-covered basin into a lake blanketed with grasses several feet high.
