Of or pertaining to the rhinoceros

For reasons I won't go into, I was wondering what the adjectival form of the word rhinoceros is this morning. I thought it might be something like rhinoceroid, or rhinoceristic, or (my favourite) rhinocerous.

I looked it up in the Concise Oxford English Dictionary and was, quite frankly, astonished. The correct answer is:


Well, I suppose they are pretty damn horny.
