Pictures of a newborn Grass (White) rhino from last week….
This brings the NNP total to 13 individuals. 10 were translocated from Nakuru NP a few years. A cow gave birth (see archive) & then the last surviving Grass rhino (a bull) was brought in from the Mara after his companion was poached. = 12
Here is the new little creature : I bet it is a female!!
Looks like we have a BREEDING population of Ceratotherium simum simum, a species from the Southern savannahs of Africa.
From 10-20 animals in the early years of the 20th century, there may be 5000 or so of this sp. which is Critically Endangered.
Could you please tell the ignorant people that RHINO HORN IS NOT MEDICINE….
