Young White Rhino- Nairobi Park, Kenya

A playful young White Rhino from Nairobi Park. The name is derived from the Afrikaans word 'wyd' for 'wide'- descriptive of the wide mouth adapted for grazing. The Black Rhino browses more, with a narrow prehensile upper lip designed to selectively feed on leaves.
