Happy Two Month Birthday Mylo

Whenever there’s a story about baby animals at Walt Disney World, it is sure to make you smile. Dr. Mark Penning shared on Instagram more info about the two month (and a day) birthday of the baby white rhino named Milo. He was born on September 8th at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. He is growing fast as he is now 288 lb and gained almost 100 lb in one month. Here is what he shared on his Instagram.

We’re “crashing” your feed to celebrate the two-month birthday of baby white rhino with a name update. Everyone … meet Mylo, born on Sept. 8!

Mylo now weighs 288lbs — he’s gained 100 pounds in just one month! He’s still backstage bonding with his mom and learning important rhino activities, like wallowing. He’s amazing at covering his whole body in mud! We can’t wait to keep watching him grow.

You can visit the rest of the white rhinos, including Mylo’s half-brother Ranger, at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park. And stay tuned for more updates coming soon on the newest rhino calf, born last week.
