A 9-week-old greater one-horned rhino calf made her debut at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park today, under the watchful eye of her attentive mother. The pair came out of the Park’s maternity corral, and mother Alta led her calf around the Safari Park’s 40-acre Asian Plains habitat. While the calf walked, a layer of young, pink skin could be spied underneath the folds of her thickening, armor-like, dark gray top layer of skin. More info.

Two horns up! 9-week old greater one-horned rhino calf, Parvesh, recently made his debut with his mother Alta. His name means “lord of celebration” in Hindi, and he’s already approaching 300 pounds. Help us welcome him.

Finally, the scheming fox makes their move! Using the Core Gears, Kyuemon has created his own loyal “Dark Ninja” disciples: “Speed Ninja” Falcon, “Puppet Ninja” Black Ant, “Substitution Ninja” Badger, “Very Strong Ninja” One-horned Rhino, and the mecha Karakuri Kyuubi. They each utilize the Izayoi-style Shurikens.

Kyuemon’s past, revealed! In order to become the Last Ninja’s disciple, the young Kyuemon studied both Italian and the Igasaki Clan’s Ninjutsu alongside Tsumuji Igasaki. However, he betrayed his master after being denied the End Shuriken. Kinji’s reason for wanting the End Shuriken is revealed as well: he wanted to revive his family but has now made peace with it.

Meanwhile, Takaharu gets a girlfriend!? Kikiyo Kousaka, a kunoichi of the Iseki Clan, appears before the Ninningers. Joining her is her master, Rock Iseki, who is also in love with Kikiyo!
