While only slightly larger than the more southern rhinoceros, a woolly rhinoceros is no less deserving of respect. On its snout, a woolly rhinoceros has two horns. The front horn is larger than the other horn and averages 40 in. in length. Underneath its thick reddish-brown hair, its gray skin falls into the shoulder, back, and rump, giving it an armored appearance. Their thick fur hides their skin and insulates their bodies against cold temperatures. Grown male woolly rhinoceroses are larger than females, reaching 12 feet in length, 6 feet in height, and weighing up to 6,500 pounds. Females have a small knob, or their horns are altogether absent. They reach 9 feet in length, 5 feet in height, and weigh up to 4,500 pounds.
Woolly rhinoceroses are very large herbivores. They have broad flat lips meant for grazing. These hairy, stocky creatures live on steppes and tundras, content living in some of the most northern and harsh climates. Depending on the seasons, in winter they may be found in lowland valleys and where there is only a light covering of snow. In summer their ranges reach as far as the northern and southern hemisphere landmasses stretch.
Woolly rhinoceroses travel mostly alone, with the exception of mothers and calves. Unless provoked they're content to spend their days within their herds, grazing on the tough grasses of the cold world they live in. A woolly rhinoceros's herd is composed of a dominant male with as many females and their offspring that he can maintain. They spar each other for dominance and females, or they will use their horns to dig for edible plants. When they are attacked or feel threatened they will use their horns to make gore attacks, and their size to trample their foes.
