Wounded Rhinoceros

This Month in Photo of the Day: National Geographic Magazine Features

What bloodied this rhino? Maybe a clash with a male rival, maybe a courting session with the departing female in the background. The park harbors three quarters of the world's Indian one-horned rhinos—11 per square mile. The crowding could lead to more battles and more wounds, which are a frequent sight.
