Female rhinos are old enough to have babies when they are about four to six years old. Males mature around seven years.  Choosing a mate can be difficult and dangerous.  Male rhinos sometimes fight over the females.  Because of their sharp, dagger-like horns, these fights can result in nasty wounds.
Choosing a mate is a dangerous and complicated process. Male rhinos compete for female attention by fighting each other.

Once the male and female rhino have chosen one another, mating may last for several hours. Afterwards the male leaves. A female’s gestation period lasts 15-16 months. Normally only one baby, or calf, is born. On very rare occasions there may be two.
