Elasmotherium & White Rhinoceros compared
An adult Elasmotherium from 2 million years ago is compared to a modern adult White Rhinoceros (Ceratotherium simum). The Elasmotherium is over 7 feet tall at the shoulder and weighs 8,000 pounds*, while the White Rhinoceros is 6 feet tall at the shoulder and weighs 7,000 pounds.
Elasmotherium should not be confused with the smaller and extinct woolly rhinoceros.
* Values are estimates only based upon available paleontological data.
