The black rhinoceros (Diceros bicornis) inhabits dry brush and thorn country, where its thick skin provides good protection. These rhinos may reach a weight of three thousand pounds and have a front horn as long as fifty-three inches. Black rhinos are solitary, the mother and young composing the main social unit. After a gestation period of seventeen to eighteen months, a single calf is born and remains with the mother for about two years, not reaching maturity until five to seven years of age. The red-billed tickbird—better known as the red-billed oxpecker—(Buphagus erythrorhyncus), often seen on rhinoceros and other large mammals of the African plains, was long thought to feed on the ticks that infest these animals. However, current thinking suggests that the birds may be more parasitic than beneficial to the animals.
The habitat dioramas are among the greatest treasures of the American Museum of Natural History in New York City, depicting a precise moment in time—a specific location, complete with its indigenous flora and wildlife. The Museum is one of the world’s preeminent scientific, educational, and cultural institutions, drawing millions of visitors each year. Visit amnh.org for more information.

This puzzle offers a bit of a challenge with the similar colors of the rhinos and ground. It was fun and beautiful when finished.
Okay, so I do puzzles maybe a little differently. I only examine the box art when deciding whether or not to purchase the puzzle, then again when I pour the puzzle pieces out onto my puzzle table. Then the box art goes into the closet and I assemble the puzzle based solely on memory. This makes puzzle solving much more difficult. The Black Rhinoceros Diorama AMNH was very difficult. It took me a week working on it regularly. An issue with this puzzle is that many of the pieces are very similar, not just in color and pattern, but in shape. It is very possible to fit pieces into their wrong spots in the picture. Until one understands this, it is easy to run into "brick walls" so to speak in making progress.
Worth the price and fun to do
Muted colors but once you sort the shades it becomes less daunting. True to natural surroundings
A little difficult due to the lack of color for assistance. Recommend highly.
