A commented list of tapir and rhinoceros specimens deposited in the collection of the National Museum in Prague and several other Czech collections is presented. The list contains 186 specimens and 190 collection items of ceramorphs, belonging to two species of tapirs (Tapirus indicus, T. terrestris) and five species of rhinoceroses (Ceratotherium simum, C. cottoni, Diceros bicornis, cf. Dicerorhinus sumatrensis, Rhinoceros unicornis). Although the majority of specimens are represented by wild born animals, their scientific value is limited due to the absence of geographical origin (mainly in tapirs) and/or morphological characters evidencing their geographical pecularities (e.g. only horns preserved from rhinoceroses). The collections of the National Museum in Prague and Zoological Museum in Protivín contain several captive born individuals of tapirs and numerous specimens of captive rhinoceroses. These specimens of known age are well available for the calibration of age determination based on teeth eruption and wear, and for detecting of some captivity-induced changes in their somatic parameters. The most unique specimens include four captive northern white rhinoceroses (Ceratotherium cottoni) and a hybrid female between southern and northern white rhinoceroses.
