MILK COMPOSITION OF INDIAN RHINOCEROS (RHINOCEROS UNICORNIS) AND CHANGES OVER LACTATION
TLDR
Milk of the Indian rhinoceros is low in fat and protein but high in lactose, which is comparable to the milk composition of other rh inoceros species and horses, but not African elephants.

Characterization of gross composition, energy value, and fatty acid profile of milk from lowland tapir (Tapirus terrestris) during different lactation periods
TLDR
Light is shed on tapir fatty acid metabolism and on nutritional requirements of their newborns, which can be used to improve conservation and management strategies, and contributing to the general knowledge of milk from other members of the order Perissodactyla.
Milk Evolution with Emphasis on the Atlantogenata
The milk composition of each species is unique, because it has evolved according to specific needs and adaptation to the environment. As milk data from more species became available, an evolutionary

The milk of the African elephant.
TLDR
Milk collected from thirty wild African elephants immediately after they were shot contained an average of 5.1% protein, 9.3% fat and 3.6% lactose, and the contribution of capric acid to the total fatty acids increased with advancing lactation.
Milk production and composition in captive Iberian red deer (Cervus elaphus hispanicus): effect of birth date.
TLDR
Results suggest that milk production and milk energetic quality might increase by advancing calving date in red deer hinds.
MILK CHARACTERISTICS OF A CAPTIVE INDIAN RHINOCEROS (RHINOCEROS UNICORNIS)
TLDR
Values for total protein, casein, whey protein, sugar, and minerals in the present investigation were similar to values reported previously in Indian rhinoceros milk, but not in milk of the white rhin Coceros (Ceratotherium simum) or black rhInoceros (Diceros bicornis).
CHANGES DURING LACTATION IN THE COMPOSITION OF THE MILK OF THE AFRICAN BLACK RHINOCEROS (DICEROS BICORNIS)
TLDR
The analysis shows that rhinoceros's milk contains very little fat at all times during the lactation cycle.

TLDR
The dominant saccharide in this milk sample was lactose, but it also contained isoglobotriose (Glc(alpha1-3)Gal(beta1-4)Glc) as well as a variety of sialyl oligosaccharides, which differed from previously published data on Asian elephant milk oligosACcharides.

TLDR
The application of high-pH anion-exchange chromatography with pulsed amperometric detection and TLC to characterize and quantitate neutral and sialylated lactose-derived oligosaccharides in milk from three Asian elephants and human milk is described.
