Adult rhinoceros have no real predators in the wild, other than humans.

​Young rhinos can however fall prey to big cats, crocodiles, wild dogs, and hyenas. International trade in rhinoceros horn has been declared illegal.  A proposal by Swaziland to lift the international ban was rejected in October 2016.Domestic sale of rhinoceros horn in South Africa, home of 80% of the remaining rhino population, was banned as of 2009. However, that ban was overturned in a court case in 2017, and South Africa plans to draft regulations for the sale of rhino horn, possibly including export for "non-commercial purposes".
