Rhinoceros Talk

This guy loves to wallow in it…

Brave the splatter-zone and learn all about Southern White Rhinoceros as one of our big boys enjoys an invigorating mud-bath.

You wouldn’t expect the tough, wrinkly hide of a rhinoceros to need protection from the sun or insects, but that’s exactly what happens when they coat themselves in glorious mud. It also cools them down in the heat of the African plains and feels just great! Come along and find out what other tactics rhinos use to make the most of their African habitat. Don’t forget to ask about their piles of poo…!
