Description:

The Wooly Rhino (or Coelodonta) is a member of the family Rhinocerotidae, a relative of the smaller, hairless rhinos that are more common today. Coelodonta thrived in the much colder climates of the last Ice Age, using its great bulk and thick coat to keep warm.

The coat of Coelodonta is actually several layers of protective warmth. The top layer is long and dense hair, underneath which lies a layer of shorter, finer hair. Beneath both hair layers is a thick layer of fat to further protect the animal from the cold.

Twenty thousand years ago, Coelodonta were a common sight across much of Europe and Asia. Unlike many Ice Age mammals, Coelodonta never took advantage of the land bridge connecting North America to Asia, where the Bering Strait is today.

Coelodonta is about 11 feet long, but the pair of long curved horns on its head add to its length considerably. The longer of these two horns can be up to three feet long. This longer curved horn serves several purposes--self defense, attracting a mate, and clearing snow from food. Unlike the horns of other animals, the horns of Coelodonta and other members of the rhinoceros family are made from matted hair. The horns are solid rather than hollow and the fused hairs are very strong. Despite their material, these horns are tough enough to make the Coelodonta a fierce foe.

Despite its ability to defend itself, Coelodonta has been widely hunted by man. Early in the history of man, Coelodonta was a common food, as evidence left behind on French cave walls tells us. Early hunters most likely would use pits to trap these fierce animals and then kill them from a distance with rocks or spears. Since Coelodonta are solitary animals, like modern rhinos, and cannot move quickly, they often become food for humans, Sabre-tooth Cats and other large predators.

The Life Cycle

Who do they like to live with and eat?

 

To build a good animal exhibit you need to ask a few questions: (click them for the answers)

Which fence is suitable for this animal in terms of strength, if it can be climbed or jumped over?

How big should the exhibit be and what Terrain should be used?

What foliage should be used?

What rocks should be used?

What shelter does the animal need?

What toy does the animal like?

How deep should the exhibit be if using the "Pit Method"?
