    Another poll in a series for zoochatters to vote for one of two EDGE mammal species. This time it is a contest between two herbivorous heavyweights from Africa and Latin America respectively: the black rhino and the Baird's tapir.

    Both are odd toed ungulates, both are classified as endangered by the IUCN and both are threatened by hunting , habitat destruction and climate change.

    Which of these mammal species interests you most / will you vote for ?

    Not a great turn out for this poll but nevermind.

    The black rhino won this poll so here is a video to celebrate it winning of a very close encounter in Kruger National Park, South Africa :
