"This animal's horn is a whopping half the size of its body. Although originally members of arid-region rhinoceroses, these migrated to colder climates and adapted to live in snowy mountains. Their hides are particularly thick, and their horns can cause some serious damage, so only experienced hunters should track these."
Hyrule Compendium

Rhinoceroses are a race of animals from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. They are registered as Great-Horned Rhinoceroses in the Hyrule Compendium. They live in the Hebra Mountains and Gerudo Highlands regions where they have adapted well to their snowy environment. These rhinoceroses are large creatures with thick, shaggy pelts and a long, curved, ivory horn that is half the size of its body. Like all wildlife, they can be hunted by Link for either Raw Prime Meat or Raw Gourmet Meat. However they can often charge Link in self-defense if they spot him. They can be killed instantly with an Arrow shoot to their head preferably in their eyes.

According to the Hyrule Compendium, Great-Horned Rhinoceros are descended from a species of arid-region rhinoceros that migrated to colder climates. Interestingly no arid-region dwelling species is encountered by Link in Hyrule indicating arid-region Rhinocerous come from lands beyond Hyrule, went extinct in Hyrule, or all adapted to cold environments becoming Great-Horned Rhinoceros. Presumably the Great-Horned Rhinoceros evolved from Rhinoceros living in the arid portions of the Gerudo province such as Gerudo Desert before migrating to the Gerudo Highlands where they evolved, then migrated beyond the Gerudo province to Hebra Mountains and Tabantha Tundra in the province of Hebra.

In Meadela's Mantle, Bokoblins ride Bears to hunt Great-Horned Rhinoceros thus in addition to Hylians they are hunted by Bokoblins.
