Rhino calves explore savanna
Two greater one-horned rhino calves, along with their mothers, entered the expansive Asian Savanna habitat for the first time at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. Mother rhinos Asha and Tanaya gave birth to their calves a little more than two weeks apart. Both mom-and-calf pairs have enjoyed plenty of private time bonding before interacting with other wildlife on the savanna.
Tanaya and her female calf, which has not yet been named, were the first to emerge from their private time together. Asha and her male calf, named Arjun, were next to venture out onto the savanna.
“It’s great to see Asha and Tanaya introducing their calves to other wildlife for the first time,” said Jillian King, senior wildlife care specialist, San Diego Zoo Safari Park. “Everything is new to the calves right now, so it will be interesting to watch them explore. We will keep a watchful eye on them, and look forward to them meeting more of the wildlife on the savanna soon.”
The greater one-horned rhinoceros was once widespread in Southeast Asia, but it is now found only in India and Nepal. It differs from other rhino species, as it has an armor-plated appearance – but that “armor” is actually a layer of skin that has many folds. While the two calves explored, a layer of young, pink skin could be spied underneath the folds of their thickening, dark gray top layer of skin.
