This three weeks old black rhi­noc­eros calf, born 23 Decem­ber 2017, knows exactly how to make an entrance. First she couldn’t wait to leave her mother’s womb unex­pect­edly early. Sec­ondly, she proves to be fear­less when pre­ced­ing her mother enter­ing the out­door enclo­sure. This female calf is the sec­ond black rhino calf ever to be born in a Dutch Zoo. The first one was born 57 years ago – also in Rot­ter­dam Zoo.
