Black Rhinos are extinct?!?

black-rhinoRead today on the news that Black Rhinos are now declared extinct. (article: here)

How incredibly sad! I remember during my last year in high school I did a presentation of The Black Rhino by Ted Hughes, a poem depicting the rhino’s power and glory. But sadly, the black rhino is no more =(

Sometimes, I wonder what the planet would be like if there were no humans. Would another species take domination and control of the planet? Would there be another species as intelligent as humans? Or would it be a world of simple predatory hierarchies, each being living day by day without ambition or development? Mankind has undoubtedly caused irreversible damage to the earth, but without a species as resourceful and inventive as us, it almost seems pointless.
