There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

I am surprised to see the way they are coiled and curved at the base and extend up to the elbow joint.

WII creating rhino DNA database
The Dehradun-based Wildlife Institute of India (WII) has, for the first time, successfully created a DNA database of almost 200 rhinos from Assam, Uttar Pradesh and West Bengal.

Updated: Oct 05, 2018

DEHRADUN: This is the first time that work is underway to create a database of the roughly 3,300 rhinos in the country. Samrat Mondal, who is heading the project, believes that the database will help prosecute wildlife offenders once confiscated rhino parts are matched and tested with the tissue of the poached animal.

“It will help us produce scientific evidence before the law for prosecuting wildlife offenders,” says Mondal.

The dedicated Wildlife Forensic and Conservation Genetics Cell of the institute now has DNA samples of around 40 from the Dudhwa National Park in Uttar Pradesh, 100 rhinos from the Pobitora Wildlife Sanctuary in Assam, 35-40 from Manas National Park and about 70-80 rhinos from Kaziranga National Park, all in Assam.

“We started creating the database in January and have records of 150-200 rhinos so far. The database is continuously growing. Already, four crime cases have been analysed and solved after seized rhino parts were matched with the poached animal,” Mondal said.

Besides the tissues being collected by the forest departments, WII and WWF-India are also collecting rhino dung and individual-level data is being generated to augment the tissue-based database.
"Everything not saved will be lost."

Is it true that the Indian rhinoceros kills with his lower tusks rather than his horn as I seem to remember?   Neutral
