A rhinoceros was a natural herbivorous animal found in warm plains.
They had big, barreled chests with stout legs and thick-skin, which was usually gray in color. They had one to three horns on their snouts that they used to impale their opponents.
These creatures were known to be short-tempered and attacked anything they perceived as a threat. They were also reputed to particularly hate fire, and would travel miles in an effort to stomp out any fire within their territory.
On Faerûn, they were found in every southern grassland of the continent. "Southern" in this case meant everything south of an imaginary line between the Starspire Mountains to the west and the Giant's Belt Mountains to the east.
In Kara-Tur, people were known to harvest the hides of rhinos and use them to craft an armor known as chia. Many in Kara-Tur also believed that their horns were a powerful aphrodisiac, despite evidence to the contrary, and would pay large sums for them.
