Abstract

Clara, the rhinoceros, was a true superstar, and according to historical records, she enjoyed ‘a good quantity of wine and spirituous liquors’ as well as beer, oranges, and tobacco smoke blown up her nose. Indeed, ‘rhino-mania’ hit Europe: there were medals cast in her honour, poems written addressed to her, and in Paris, even a whimsical hair-style was named after her. Here Clara is contrasted with Albinus’s human form.
