World Rhino Day – September 22 – was certainly a day for celebration this year at the Sumatran Rhino Sanctuary! Welcome Andatu!

3-month-old Sumatran Rhino boy, Andatu with his mum Ratu at Way Kambas National Park.

◆the playful boy and mum’s must-see video on the International Rhino Foundation's facebook page saying “It will make you smile!

smile?? i’m dying of the CUTENESS XD!!!

Andatu - the famous sumatran rhino calf - wrote this on his Facebook page earlier today:

"On Monday, my grandfather, Ipuh, died. He lived at the Cincinnati Zoo in the United States, which is also where my dad was born. I never met Grandpa Ipuh, but they say he was about 33 years old – the oldest Sumatran rhino in any zoo. He also fathered three calves – my dad Andalas, my Aunt Suci and my Uncle Harapan – making him the most prolific male of our species in captivity. This makes me very proud."
