Rhinoceroses, also known as rhinos, are a species of villager in the Animal Crossing series. They have large snouts with visible horns, and distinct nostrils. Their ears are pointed upwards, their eyes are on the sides of their heads, and their upper jaw hooks downwards over their lower jaw. Between Doubutsu no Mori and Doubutsu no Mori e+, the rhinoceros' snouts ended in a rounded bump, but as of Animal Crossing: Wild World, their snouts instead slowly slope upward towards the end. Animal Crossing: New Horizons notably redesigned rhinoceroses to feature smaller mouths, shorter ears, and gave their snouts a distinct shape from the rest of their heads. Additionally, Azalea, Renée, and Rhonda only have one horn at the end of their nose, whereas the other rhinoceroses have an additional, smaller horn behind it.
There are nine rhinoceroses so far, one of which is an islander. Six are female and three are male, making it a predominantly female species. Of these, three are normal, two are snooty, one is lazy, one is jock, one is cranky, and one is big sister. There are currently no peppy or smug rhinoceroses.
Patricia and Tiara are the only rhinoceroses who have not reappeared since Doubutsu no Mori e+. All of the rhinoceroses who appear in Animal Crossing: New Horizons also appear in Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp. Additionally, Tank is the only rhinoceros to appear in every game so far.
