The rhinoceroses that have protected the Biological Laboratories since 1931 are being moved to a warehouse, where they will be stored until completion of a new, underground Biolabs building. A rhino (left) is hoisted by crane onto a waiting truck. The bronze beasts represent the great Indian species, Rhinoceros unicornis, and are equal in size to the largest recorded specimen. The preliminary studies for these bronzes were made at the New York Zoological Park. The sculptor is Katherine Ward Lane Weems.
