The white rhino is the larger of the rhino species, mainly found in African countries such as South Africa, Botswana, Kenya, Namibia, Zambia, Zimbabwe and Uganda. Rhinos tend to wallow in the mud, which serves as a cooling technique, effective sun protection and insect repellent. They have poor eyesight, but acute senses of hearing and smell. They are particularly vulnerable to poaching because of their horns. Massive campaigns

Love the rhino and the whole wild animal series

Have done the elephant, giraffe, zebra.lion and African princess. Have also purchased the kudo. Really having fun with these.
Instructions are complete and easy to understand. I highly recommend!

As yet I haven’t started this embroidery, but having just finished the elephant,I’m sure it will be good. Just one thing— I wish there was a way when ordering PDF patterns to only receive the pattern itself, the order of work, materials required etc. but not the Stitch guide,preparation materials etc, because it is such a waste of paper, and more experienced sewers don’t need all that stuff.

Thanks Kathleen your comment on receiving additional files for stitches and embroidery essentials is noted. It would be difficult to separate orders for more experienced sewers from those who are beginners, but you can always delete these extra two files and only print the pattern.
