Rhinoceros Riddles

Our series of animal riddles for kids continues today with five where the answer is rhinoceros.

The first three of these are rhyming riddles, the fourth is a one-liner and the fifth asks your children What Am I?

To use that What Am I? riddle, read the clue on the first line to your kids and have them take a guess at what they think the answer is.

If they’re incorrect, read them the second line and have them take another guess. Continue doing this until they either guess that the answer is rhinoceros or they run out of clues.

Means that you would never be cold
