Black Rhinos live in the African Savannah.
Physical and Behavioral Adaptations of the Black Rhino
The black rhino will become more skinny due to the lack of plants that will be in the new environment and they will run even faster than before.
Physical #2: Develop Longer Necks
In Rockville, we have more rain compared to the African Savannah, the trees will grow taller. When the trees grow taller, the black rhinos will adapt by getting longer necks to reach the trees to be able to eat the leaves.
Behavioral #1: Not Be As Free
The black rhino won't be free because of the lack of space. The area will only be a mile in diameter.
Behavioral #2: Develop Better Instincts
Since the amount of space is smaller, they will be closer to their predators and understand them better. They will know when the predator will attack and if they're near or not.
