Rhino mother Nane and her little baby affectionately make contact with one another. The mother-child relationship is established. The little bundle of joy is becoming more curious about her surroundings every day - born in 13. July 2013 at Krefeld Zoo!
The five-day-old "Hörnchen" :o) - a species which is classed by conservationists as critically endangered - is the fourth calf of Nane. Her arrival is another step towards sustaining a black rhino population which, in the wild, has been devastated by poachers.
