In Latin, the word 'simus' means 'snub-nosed.' But Simus doesn't snub his nose at anything! He loves his big nose because it gives him an air of pointed distinction. He is strong and flexible. His hardwood frame can hold many poses. His elastic-band muscles and durable Beechwood limbs make him nearly impervious to breakage. Unlike most other rhinoceros, he doesn't like to be submerged in water. No baths for Simus!
