  1. @abe I don’t find those arguments compelling. The first page I looked says rhinoceros are not (and have never been) aquatic, but doesn’t bother to provide any evidence at all.

    A quick look at wikipedia mentions the Amynodontidae family that was probably aquatic, and the family of modern rhinos, Rhinocerotidae. I don’t see what’s the probable original habitat of that family, but I don’t think there’s evidence enough to be completely certain.
