Illegal poachers and tradershe have always considered the black rhino’s horn as a highly prized item, as well as a weapon to ward off predators. Worried about these wild creatures, conservationists in South Africa decided to remove their horns – and in one removal opeartion, they made a remarkable discovery.

As a Black Rhino had its horn removed as part of a legal de-horning process to protect the endangered animals by deterring poachers they were stunned to discover the perfect shape of a heart running through it.

One young boy is shown below, displaying the rhino’s horn which had been removed in a legal de-horning process.

This extraordinarily rare finding exhibits a brilliantly dark black love heart right in the center of a milky beige animal horn. The magnificent rhino was part of a legal de-horning programme initiated by Dr William Fowlds.

The rhino de-horning process took place at the Kragga Kamma Game Park loacted in Port Elizabeth, South Africa.
