A Rhinox

Rhinoxen or Rhinox are large, furry and horned beasts, looking like both oxes and rhinos, hence the name. They are pack animals who live in the Mountains of Mourn with the Ogres. Being so large, they are undertandably strong and resilient, with the coat of fur thick enough to deflect blows. Like Ogres and Dwarfs, it is quite slow-witted, but when it sees the nearby enemy, it will almost always charge straight at it, molesting to death anything in its way. Even larger variety exists, known as the Bull Rhinox, which easily matches the Varghulf in power.[1][2]

The Rhinox has very poor eyesight and this coupled with its obstinate nature means a herd will not alter its path for anything - predators, rockfalls or the weather. They do have a keen sense of smell but also tend to charge anything that does not smell like a Rhinox, or even if it does! [5a]

Ogres

In the Ogre Kingdoms, the Rhinoxen usually serve as a food source for the Ogres. However, some Rhinoxen are used to pull Gnoblar Scraplaunchers, while both regular and Bull Rhinoxen are used as mounts by the Ogres powerful enough to break them.[3][4]

Prey

They are hunted by various races - including Ogres, Dwarfs and in particular Night Goblins who, though unable to confront it directly often trap it in a defile and crush it with boulders. After all, a single Rhinox can feed an entire tribe for a long time, especially washed down with a good pint of fengus brew. [5a]
