Wonderful White Rhino Calf

A southern white rhinoceros made its public debut June 4. The spunky female, which remains unnamed, was seen tearing across its enclosure at the Dublin Zoo in Ireland. The mother, Ashanti, kept a close watch on her calf.

Time for a nice cozy nap after all that skipping about.

White rhinos are the second-largest land mammals after the elephant. Once facing extinction, the species remains critically endangered. Telling a white rhino from a black one is a guessing game -- since both are gray in color! It's unclear how white rhinos received their name. Both white and black rhinoceroses mainly live in eastern and southern Africa while other varieties reside in Asia.
