3 week old rhino is kinda adorable (video)

A newborn baby rhino at the San Diego Zoo wasn’t gaining weight, so the zookeepers put him on a special diet — feeding him with a bottle — and exercising him themsevles every day.

The resulting video is pretty freaking adorable.

    First time I ever was envious of San Diego! (too close to the Issa Infection for me)

  • Yes, that was my point.

    The greatest gift of the Internet — absitively and posilutely the greatest gift — is baby animal videos. They soothe our psyches, lower our blood pressure, exercise our smiling muscles, and turn every cranky aging adult into a child again.

  • We have a young rhino at Lincoln Park Zoo, born August of last year. His mother didn’t want to bring him out much, so sightings were rare. I saw him when he was about 6 weeks old, already a good size. He didn’t walk — he’s stand for a moment or two, then run, stand and run.

    It’s a pattern I’ve noticed in a number of species, including Homo sapiens — the young tend to run a lot.

  • Baby rhinos can easily weigh over 100lbs at birth, and if healthy and well fed, put on around five pounds a day. Dangerous is all relative, but when you’re talking about an animal that simply weighs enough to overpower you, even play behavior could be potentially be dangerous. Or imagine if he panicked and you just happened to be in the way? Dominance and territorial behaviors don’t generally become a problem until puberty.

  • Meaning, when are they not safe to be around. Where they might actually hurt you.

    Depends on what you mean by dangerous. Right now they are being hunted to extinction by poachers so I’d say we’re more dangerous to them than they are to us.

    “I’d be curious at what age they become more dangerous.” RINO——about the time they join the Tea Party!

  • It’s only 3 weeks old! And I found the running kind of adorable. I’d be curious at what age they become more dangerous.

    That’s a new-born? Uf-da! Running with it is cute but I’m not sure I’d encourage even a baby rhino to learn to chase me. And definitely not with long hair flying around. Remember Shamu!
