Well, we welcomed Indian Rhinoceros, Seto Paitala, with a round of trivia last year, so let's do the same for Kiwidi, the Black Rhino. See how the species differ and check out a whole lotta cuteness, too!
While we've seen other White Rhinos like Keyah, but this is actually a different animal: a subspecies, the Northern White Rhino. There are actually only eight known remaining Northern White Rhinoceroses (all in captivity) with two living at the San Diego Zoo and six at a zoo in Dvur Kralove, Czech Republic. This twosome, Fatu and Nabiro, will be transferred to a Kenyan reserve in attempts to ensure the survival of the species.

For those of you who've never had the privilege of getting taunted by a rhino — OK, me neither — lemme tell you: that's his tongue! This sassy baby was born on April 20 in Tokyo's Ueno Zoo and he's already quite the character, even though he seems to be lacking ear hair.
There are less than 5,000 black rhinoceroses (one of several species) surviving in the world, but breeding programs help give these creatures a fighting chance. Are those fighting words? Maybe that's why he's sticking his tongue out — see for yourself below.
I'm definitely thinking this baby animal, like all others, is pretty adoro even at just five days old. Even though we can only see the start of one horn now, the White Rhinoceros will eventually have two, just like mom. Speaking of, I'm betting she's rather glad to finally have given birth as this species carries babes-in-bellies for 16 months (which is not even the longest of any land mammal).Check out another piccy of lil Keyah exploring the surroundings at Cerza Zoo in France when you read more
Yes, here on PetSugar the baby animals keep getting younger and younger! If you thought that four-day-old fellow I featured last week was absolutely adoro, this newborn will leave you speechless. My fave features of this lil boy are his huge ears and huge feet. This one-day-old rhino makes his home in Krefeld, Germany and was just born on May 7. He's actually a Black Rhinoceros (Manjula was an Indian Rhinoceros) and will grow up to have two horns where those bumps are now! It's hard to get an idea just how tiny he is – about 80 pounds – but see him next to his big mommy when you read more
Here I am, always looking for an excuse to brush up on wild animal knowledge! In honor of today's holiday, Save the Rhino Day, (and with the recent birth of Manjula), I wanted to see if any of you are game to become rhinoceros experts. Test your knowledge and, hey, maybe you'll learn something!Take the Quiz
