" This model represents a miniature of the big rhinoceros. It’s really similar to it but this one is looking the ground and it is not raising its muzzle. It has a white horn and its body is grey. "

1940 catalogue description

" Almost as cumbersome looking as the fully grown adult, these animals frequent swampy ground where they are very fond of mud baths. Their usual gait is a long swinging trot, but when disturbed they will break into a very rapid gallop. "
