Mom and me...

A portrait of a very playful little baby White Rhinoceros (Ceratotherium simum) calf next to his very impressive mother.

 

Rhinos are illegally being hunted to the point of extinction due to the illegal trade in Rhino Horn for Eastern traditional medicine. The reality is that horns are made of Keratin, which is exactly the same as nails and hair (nothing more).
