Rhino horns

Contrary to popular belief, the rhino horn is not used as an aphrodisiac. Typically, these horns are used as ornaments, daggers and traditional medicine. I don't know what is more disturbing -- the fact that we have hunted one of the most majestic species on earth to death, or that someone actually believes powdered keratin from a dead mammal can cure their typhoid.
