Say Hello to the most wrinkled calf ever! She was our little Christmas present, as she was born on the first day of Christmas in 2017, and was walking within an hour of her birth
This little girl has so many characterising wrinkles on her side, that we renamed her after her appearance. Originally she was called Lynn, this changed to wrinkly Lynn, and now only the wrinkly part has stuck. Rhinos have wrinkly skin to help control body temperature by trapping moisture in the folds. So, this girl has her own built in air-conditioning with all her wrinkles.
Wrinkles loves to take a bite from moms’ food, and she is so excited about the feeding that she will often run behind the vehicle all the way to the feeding area.
This little baby is not scared and has a very excited and playful attitude. She is not afraid to play fight with calves that are way bigger than her and she often even wins!
It is important for us to understand the intricacies of rhino habits and living if we are to be able to help them to survive the very possible threat of extinction. The more rhinos that are born and raised, the better the chance of this species remaining part of the natural, very valuable fauna of our earth.
Help us today by adopting our cute Wrinkles and helping her to have a great life, and to bare even more offspring. Every step towards getting rhinos out of the red zone is a very important task that each one of us should be taking.
Date of Birth: 25 December 2017
