The little black rhino orphan, Ryan, is progressing very nicely and has an insatiable appetite. He is eating so much that our carers had to cut more browse late last night.
This morning the little rhino was calling softly and started sucking on a carers hand. It was decided to try milk one more time… Happy rhino bummie. The only way he figured out how to suck on the artificial teat was laying down and that is probably because at this age in the wild, they suckle from mom when laying down. The only way they can manage to drink from mom.
