Main Reasons Why Rhinos Are Transported Upside Down Using Helicopters And Different Species

Catching and transporting large African elephants, rhinos, buffalo, lions, leopards can sometimes be dangerous for both the specialist and the animals with great care that is not carried out.   Today I'm going to share with you the main reason scientists turn helicopter rhinos upside down during the move. 

Rhino species 

There are five rhino species worldwide, namely black rhinos, which are mainly found in Africa. White rhinoceros are primarily found in South Africa, the third species mainly found in the dense forests of Indonesia and known as the Javanese rhinoceros. Finally, we have the Sumatran rhinoceros (this species is mainly found in South Asia), which is the smallest species of rhinoceros weighing around 600 kilograms and 900 kilograms and the largest of a horn also known as the Indian rhinoceros.  

The Reason for Relocating Rhinos  One of the main reasons for relocating rhinos is to protect them from poachers. These animals are hunted for their horns, which have an easily available market in Asian countries.  You are transported to fenced areas and can be monitored by World Life Services at all times.

The reason why rhinos are transported backwards  Wildlife officers inject sedative drugs into the target rhinoceros before catching it. This drug allows the animal to doze off so the officers can catch it. During transport, rhinos are hung upside down by the ankles from a helicopter.  Transporting rhinos upside down in helicopters is one of the most common and safest ways to move these giant mammals over short distances. Wearing rhinos on your head improves ventilation.
