Full Answer

Baby rhinoceroses do not have a horn when born, but their horns begin growing shortly after birth. They stay with their mothers, who teach them everything they need to know to survive, until she gives birth to the next baby rhinoceros. By that time, the baby is almost fully grown. Baby rhinos rely on their mother's milk for nourishment at first, but begin grazing long before weaning. Rhinoceroses are strictly herbivores that weigh roughly 1,500 pounds at maturity.
