Rhinoceros are killed by humans for their horns, which are bought and sold on the black market. The value of the horns is more than their weight in gold. Gémessy uses goldluster for her Rhino horns as an allegation on the hunt. Every Rhino has a special numeral which symbolizes the date of killing.
