Third Baby Rhino Born at Disney’s Animal Kingdom in 13 Months

Walt Disney World is so much more than just movies and Theme Parks. Over at Disney’s Animal Kingdom you can learn about a program they have called the Disney Conservation Fund where are they help rescue animals. This is a perfect example of that. There has now been a third baby rhino born in only 13 months. This is incredible news since rhinos are an endangered species. The white rhino calf was born on Tuesday night, November 2nd, 2021. A name has not been given yet. The newborn will be kept backstage, for now, to nurse and bond with its mom, Lola. We can’t wait to see them out hopefully soon.

Some facts you may or may not have known about rhinos.  The white rhinos are the second largest land mammal, and they get their name from the Afrikaans, a West Germanic language, word “weit,” which means wide and that refers to the animal’s mouth. The lifespan of a white rhino is 40 to 50 years. The white rhino is also the largest species of rhino and can weigh anywhere from 4,000 to 6000 pounds.
