Notched

If you look at the ears of this rhino you can see that it has been 'notched'. Small pieces of skin have been cut out of the ear. This is a common practice in rhino conservation - it allows for medical testing but it also provides a great Identification tool. We used these notches to figure out who was who for the rhinos on the reserve.
