This 3-month-old is a southern white rhino. It is very easy to distinguish her from a baby northern white rhino because there are no baby northern white rhinos in the entire world. She lives in a National Park in southern Africa where there is now a lot more protection for her. Poachers are wiping out rhinos all over the world, lusting after their horns which can get them a lot of money on the black market.
There are only 2 left in the world, mother and daughter Najin and Fatu. They are under 24 hour guarded surveillance at the Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Kenya where they are still threatened by poachers. The white rhino is the second-largest land mammal in the world and is not actually white at all. Its name may have come from a misunderstanding of the Afrikaan’s name “weit” which means wide. White rhinos have a wide square lip whereas black rhinos have a pointed upper lip, so the name could be in reference to their mouth.
