White Rhino's family  - M9709
(Ceratotherium simum)
Nakuru National Park, Kenya - August  2012


Mom is always Mom: Rhinos are elusive animals and should be considered lucky to see in nature because it is also one of the oldest living ungulates and is now at risk of extinction, after which in the 70s and 80s of the twentieth century the African population has fallen from 100,000 to 2500 individuals. Since the early '90s, the situation is slightly improved. Kenya hosts about 15% of living specimens, is the ideal place to spot him. One such place is in the Lake Nakuru National Park where they have been reintroduced and where they found a place to breed. The bond between the mother and the baby is very deep and lasts 3-4 years. I was lucky enough to see many puppies this year together with their mothers!!
