The Northern white rhinoceros (Ceratotherium simum cottoni), is a endangered subspecies of the white rhinoceros or maybe a different species closely related to it. The northern white rhino is a subspecies of white rhino, which used to range over parts of Uganda, Chad, Sudan, the Central African Republic, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Years of widespread poaching and civil war in their home range have devastated northern white rhino populations, and they are now considered to be extinct in the wild. As of 2016, the species is extinct in the wild with only 3 post-reproductive individuals living in the Oj Pejeta Conservancy in Kenya.
The animal has only been showcased in Zoo Tycoon (XBox). The only times that the Northern white rhinoceros have been in the first two game is through fan-made animals.
