Bethany is a very cute little rhino and is only 9 months old. She just loves her mom’s milk and for such a small girl she really drinks a lot of it. She needs approximately 12 litres a day to grow up to be a big and strong rhino. She also loves the treats we put out at feeding time for all the other rhinos. Even though Bethany is really young, when it comes to feeding time for mom, Bethany is more than willing to eat moms treats.
Bethany is a very curios little rhino. So, you don’t need to be afraid if she decides to come in for a closer look. She is at the age where she is very interested in discovering and learning new things.
Bethany loves a good wallow in the mud pools. She was taught to do this by her mom and this is a very important activity that she needs to do regularly. Rhinos wallow in mud to protect their skin from the sun, to cool off and to ward off parasites.
When it is hot, it is vitally important that rhinos have hollows of water where they can cool off because, despite their armour-like appearance and their 1.5-cm-thick skin, they are sensitive creatures that suffer tremendously from sunburn and insect bites.
Why don’t you help us by adopting Bethany? This will help us to keep her wallowing water holes full, keep her eating healthy and to keep her as happy as she can be.
