Exactly what my research says

One other difference

When fleeing, one species leads the young, the other trails the young

Which I cannot remember right now
White Rhino, the calf is in front, Black Rhino, as in Savoche's image, the calf is behind the mother.

Yep. And another difference is that the white rhino will run off when they become aware of you, while the black rhino bull will usually come for you. Our guide called him "a heat seeking missile".

Another guy to keep a healthy distance to when walking is the lone buffalo bull. They, too, tend to come for you if you get too close. This one got too close for comfort, no more than 15 m away before we managed to put some distance between him and us. Here he's still debating on what to do. A few seconds later he decided to turn and run, luckily.

Yours look more heavily built than this one. Probably contemplating if these two-leggers might leave some food behind.

They do tend to appear differently sized -probably an optical illusion

Think I'll shift to a lappet-faced vulture before we get into a "whose is bigger" contest.
