Did you know, Rhino, the entire gigantic mass of the wild beast, is killed just for the small tiny bit at the top of its head. Yes, poachers kill the graceful beast, not for its meat or bones, but only for its horns.

But why? It is perceived that the horn has medicinal value. How come? The horn is made up of keratin. The exact substance all humans (all 7 billion of us) have at the tip of our fingers and toes, and we frequently cut off every two-weeks some even more often. Both the horn of the rhino and the human nails on our fingers and toes have keratin.

If the people buying the horns from the poachers really want the medicinal properties of keratin, why not take all the human (7 billion of us) nail cutting. Hell, it will be a lot cheaper and less of a hassle for them.
