New SCI World Record Rhinoceros (Southern White Rhinoceros) taken in South Africa.
The Rhinoceros has had its first measurement in South Africa by SCI master measurer Frank Gentry. It is a so-called green measurement, as the official final measurement only can take place three months after the trophy was taken.
Length of front horn: 36 3/8 inches
Basis of front horn: 33 7/8 inches
Length of back horn: 13 7/8 inches
Basis of back horn: 29 2/8 inches
Total: 113 3/8 inches SCI points
The present World Record has a total score of 105 3/8 inches, so even though the horn shrinks a little during the next three months, the experts are convinced that it will still be the New SCI World Record.Rhinoceros
Beautiful Animal. I am not real familiar with Rhino hunting but I would bet an animal that weighs a couple of tons with a horn that big sticking out of the end of his nose would be a real "puckering" experience. With all the nonsense about hunting people tend to forget how dangerous these animals are. I know this picture has a little time on it but the trophy is the most outstanding I have ever seen. Congratulations on the best Rhino ever taken.
