The Indian rhino was specifically created for a Nickelodeon movie, 'Maniac McGee.' It was our first really big animal costume, and it was created under a very short schedule, so it was not as versatile and maneuverable as our second, White Rhino costume. Its weight was supported on aluminum rods in the legs which took the weight off of the actors, but required that they rock the costume side to side as they walked, so the legs could be moved.
