    probably the great aurochs or wild bulls which are now extinct. The exact meaning is not known.

    reading it literally means telling like it is,,,, not what you want it to be!

    Actually, James had quite a bit of an agenda; however, God's word remains God's word despite that agenda.

    While they can move pretty quickly, they are much more ponderous and deliberate in movement.
    We went to a park last year with rhinos and even the rangers that worked with them everyday were not able to get close to them. They are aggressive when they are adults, but the babies was so cute man. They bounced around like little antelope on all fours and it was actually so funny to see them get so excited.

    To me these verse do make sense if you replace rhino with unicorn

    Have you ever wondered why the hippo has such a large mouth?

    It is so they can get their jaws around the other hippopotami!

    Hippos kill more people in Africa per year than any other animal... they are super aggressive and dangerous. Also can run up to 25mph

    Thank you. It seems very obvious to me what this "unicorn" actually is. Especially when you look at the fossil record of those extinct huge rhino-like animals with one horn.

    Ahh well you never know anything could be, maybe the use of the word skip could have meant it's playfulness..
    Interesting that not all rhinos are uni-horn some have two horns one in front of the other..

    Yes... that's pretty cool.... after I posted that, I googled it and found some good pictures (like the one I posted) of the baby rhinos "skipping" around...

    playful baby animals are a joy to watch...
