White Rhinos are endangered animals nearing extinction, with only two known females in the world.
CAPE TOWN – Kenya has welcomed the birth of a rare southern white rhino at the Meru National Park.
“We have a newborn male southern white rhino calf at Meru National Park. He was born three days ago,” cabinet secretary for tourism and wildlife Najib Balala posted on Twitter, adding a picture of the calf with its mother Makosi.
This is the second white rhino to be born in Kenya this year. Last month, the Kenya Wildlife Service announced the birth of another white rhino at the Nairobi National Park.
It said the mother rhino had gone into hiding from hawk-eyed rangers before resurfacing with a three-day-old calf.
