Lang's note: Square-lipped rhino diorama "White or Square mouthed
Rhinocerus (Ceratotherium simm cottoni). African Belgian Congo."
The Akeley Hall of African Mammals, AMNH.
Collecting specimens of the rare white, or square-lipped, rhinoceros
(Ceratotherium simm cottoni) was one of the Congo Expedition's
primary missions. These rhinos were caught by Lang in the Uele
District above Niangara. They have been on exhibit in the museum's
Akeley Hall of African Mammals since 1936.
