INDIAN RHINOCEROS

The Indian rhinoceros lives primarily in northern India and Nepal. These massive beasts have some noticeable physical differences from their African relatives. Their segmented hide looks like a formidable coat of natural body armor. It functions a bit like one also: Flexible skin between the thicker hide "plates" allows them to shift as the rhinoceros moves.
As their Latin name Rhinoceros unicornis suggests, Indian rhinos have only one horn. Like other rhinos, these animals have sharp hearing and a keen sense of smell. They may find one another by following the trail of scent each enormous animal leaves behind on the landscape. An Indian rhino can move very quickly when aroused. Their charges have been clocked at 30 miles (48 kilometers) an hour. They can weigh up to 2000 kg. Despite their bulk, they are nimble and can jump or change direction quickly.
The Indian rhino is a grazer that travels established, tunnel-like paths through its tall grass habitat. It grasps tall grasses with its prehensile (gripping) lip. In addition to grass, rhinos eat fruit, leaves, and sometimes farm crops. They are often around water and sometimes consume aquatic plants. These herbivorous mammals and their average life span in the wild is about 40 years. These animals forage in the cooler temperatures of morning and afternoon to avoid exerting themselves in the unbearable mid-day heat. When the sun is high, they often wallow or submerge themselves in water.
They can grow to a length of about 12.5 feet (3.8 m) and height at shoulders, up to 6 feet (1.8 m).
The prominent horn for which these rhinos are so well-known has also been their downfall. Many animals have been killed for this hard, hair-like growth, which is revered for medicinal use in China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Singapore. The horn is also valued in North Africa and the Middle East as an ornamental dagger handle. There are only about 2,000 Indian rhinos left in the wild. They are an endangered species.
Their horns are used as an ornament in the _________.

AMiddle East
BChina
CIndia
DHong Kong

Tibet is a part of western China. The capital of Tibet is Lhasa.
Most of Tibet is on a piece of land called the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau. The plateau is a raised flat area about 15,000 feet (4,600 meters) above sea level. Tibet is so high that it is often called the Roof of the World. The Himalayan Mountains are to the south. Tibet's climate is cold and dry. The climate is generally dry since it is protected by mountain barriers from monsoons.
Tibetans speak the Tibetan language and practice their own form of Buddhism. The Dalai and the Panchen Lamas are the main leaders of Tibetan Buddhism. Main religion of Tibet is Buddhism. Their traditions make it a place of interest to many people. The local monks are sometimes said to have special, super human abilities.
Due to limited arable land, livestock raising is the primary occupation on the Tibetan Plateau. Among those raised are sheep, cattle, goats, camels, yaks, donkeys, and horses. They grow barley, wheat, millet, buckwheat, and potatoes. Tibetans also make handicrafts such as carpets, blankets, jewelry, and wooden bowls. A few factories produce textiles, machinery, chemicals, and other goods.
