OMG!! There is nothing cuter than small versions of big things.
Australia Zoo just announced the birth of their second Southern White Rhinoceros calf, a cute lil baybay gurrrl.
We say lil just cause she's tiny for a rhino. She actually weighs about 100 pounds!!
Because of poaching for their horns, White Rhinos are listed as Near Threatened.
So every time a new Rhino is born into the world, it's an event to celebrate!
The lil baby and her mama are spending time bonding off display.
A zookeeper said:
"We're really happy with her progress. She is feeding and is quite active – she was walking within hours of the birth."
That's great! We're so glad she's healthy!
Congrats, mama Rhino!
