A rhino calf appears to show off an abnormally large horn but it is just a trick of the camera. As the young animal walks in front of his mother it appeared as if his own tiny bump had grown to epic proportions. The bizarre image was captured by Sazar de Bruin, the manager of a distribution centre in Salt Rock, South Africa. by Sazar de Bruin / Barcroft Media
it’s so weird spending time with Zeke and Toto because Toto is just so damn Big. He’s not that tall (maybe closer to 15 than 14, idk I have to measure) but he is thick, and I don’t mean fat. His bones just feel huge. There is a giant different in feeling Zeke’s shoulder and feeling Toto’s. He’s definitely more physically intimidating. Like I’m not scared of him but I feel more like he could trample me like a rhino calf. I know Zeke could knock me over and beat me up if he wanted, but he is not that physically imposing lol. But Toto is Big! He’s really just a chunky monkey. He’s like a great dane puppy, all confused faces and giant feet. I need more mustangs because I need to know how universal this amount of Chunk is.
One-month-old greater one-horned rhino calf, Bali, jogs around his enclosure at Whipsnade Zoo. Bali was born in September 2015 and weighs in at a whopping 76kg (almost 12 stone). Picture: Tony Margiocchi / Barcroft Media
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.
