Four month old rhino calf joins the herd at Kilimanjaro Safaris

Today was a big day for Ranger the rhino calf as he joined the herd at Kilimanjaro Safaris.

The four month old rhino was joined by his mom Kendi as he explored his new surroundings. Weighing in at 600 pounds, Ranger is the first addition to the herd in five years.

The animal care team is also caring for two other rhinos expected to give birth in 2021. This is especially significant, as white rhinos – the world’s second largest land animal – are an endangered species with a near-threatened status.
