Dutch zoo's baby rhino Naomi makes her first steps outside

Tony Xu
Week-old square-lipped rhinoceros calf Naomi made her first foray into the outside world on Tuesday (March 6), accompanied by her mother, Kwanzaa. Naomi is one of three rhinoceros calves currently living at Royal Burgers' Zoo in the Netherlands, but as the youngest, she will not be on display to the public for two more months. The zoo's herd of seven rhinoceroses share their main enclosure with other large creatures including giraffes, zebras and antelopes. Naomi and her mother will be kept in a separate enclosure until the is big enough to fend for herself. A native species from the grassland of South Africa, square-lipped rhinos, which are also known as 'white rhinoceros,' face poaching for their horn in the wild and are considered 'Near Threatened' by the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources.
