Enter the Animal Hall of Shame: What happened to the Woolly Rhino? Enter the Animal Hall of Shame.
Here at the Platypus, we honour the traditions and beliefs of the animal kingdom. Namely that all animal life should be free from the threat of extinction. Extinction is the one, true greatest evil of all. There is no greater evil (except maybe Cats). So here, in the Animal Hall of Shame, we honour those animals whose lives have been snuffed out by the Homo Sh*tpiens.
What was a Woolly Rhino?
The Woolly Rhinoceros (Coelodonta antiquitatis) is a sadly extinct species of rhinoceros that was once found throughout Europe and Asia during the Pleistocene epoch. Woolly Rhinos had lived in southern England and North Sea and just about every country of Europe. During the Pleistocene epoch, they roamed open grasslands and tundra as well as occupying the cold ancient deserts of Europe.
What did the Woolly Rhino eat?
Woolly Rhinoceroses mostly fed on grasses and sedges that grew in the mammoth steppe. It was once believed that Woolly Rhino’s ate rainbow poo but that was later proven to be Unicorns.

What happened to the Woolly Rhino?
Unfortunately for the animal kingdom, the Woolly Rhino went extinct around 14,000 to 15,000 years ago. It was wiped out by climate change, not hunting, a new study suggests. Woolly rhinos once thrived throughout Europe and northern Asia, and were especially common in Siberia.
Why did the Woolly Rhino go extinct?
Genetic analysis of the remnants of 14 woolly rhinos shows that a warming climate, not hunting, probably killed them off 14,000 years ago. The numbers of woolly rhinos remained constant until close to their extinction, and far after humans had migrated to their territory in Siberia.
Did humans kill all the Woolly Rhino?
Well, this really is open for debate and essentially comes down to the question of whether humans can accept the colossal plague that they have become. When did human-caused climate change start? To what extent is there a correlation between climate change 14,000 years ago and the fact that humans conquered the entire planet and hunted all the megafauna? You’d be fair in assuming that human hunting certainly didn’t play a positive role.

What killed the Woolly Rhino?
The Woolly Rhino was wiped out mainly but climate change. However, there was also some competition amongst rival species including the Fuzzy Rhino and Silky Rhino.
Is the Woolly Rhino still alive?
There are rumours that teams of Siberian scientists may try to resurrect the animal by splicing DNA from Woolly Rhino specimens frozen in the permafrost with living Rhinos. Disney is said to be funding the project and has plans for a new Siberian mega park.
