How would the extinction of Rhinos affect other species?

    The extinction of the rhino would not directly effect any species, as they are rarely hunted by predators. However the rhinos impact on its environment would be missed in many ways. Rhinos create wallows (small pools of water created when the rhino wallows to keep cool), insects and frogs reside in these pools and feed in them. Rhinos are mega-herbivores, because of this it is assumed that they participate in the germination process. Rhino manure is nutrient-rich and thus very beneficial to the immediate area in which it is left. The full ecological impact of the rhino has yet to be investigated, but the specie’s dwindling numbers has sparked further interest on that subject.
