The rhinoceros is an umbrella species that holds immense value in African society. They are the second biggest living land mammals after the elephants. African farming communities draw upon the traits of both the more aggressive and solitary black rhino and the more sociable and territorial white rhino in their conceptualization of the qualities of leadership.
The Mapungubwe gold rhino served as an emblem of sacred leadership in a class-based society. Rhinos are a critically endangered species in Africa, and are widely protected by conversation groups.
