Baby Rhino Plays In Mud Puddles!!

Rhino

OMG! That little guy is so crazy cute, we don't know what to do!

At Tampa's Lowry Park Zoo, Jamie, an Indian Rhinoceros, gave birth to a male calf named Jiyu.

His name means compassionate friend, and that's just too sweet!

The little baby and his mama are spending time "off exhibit," which means they're away from the public, bonding as a family in private.

There was a lot of heavy rain recently, so the two-week old calf gets to splash around in mud puddles!!

This little baybay is extra special, as it's estimated that there are under 3,000 Indian Rhinos left in the entire world.

So hopefully he grows up big and strong, and can start pumping out rhinos of his own!

But don't grow up too quick just to get to breeding. You're young, enjoy the mud puddles while you've still got them.
