Rhinos are known from North America and the Old World, and have a well-documented fossil record. Rhinocerotidae is first reported from the Eocene, and members of the family persisted through the remaining Cenozoic. This chapter examines fossil remains of two Rhinocerotidae representatives present in the Daka Member. Specimens of Ceratotherium simum, a grazer, include a mandible, a maxilla, and several dental specimens. Daka Member Diceros is represented by a single premolar.

Keywords:   rhinos, Rhinocerotidae, Daka Member, Ceratotherium simum, Diceros
