New calf for the female rhino, Rose

A radio call came in this afternoon from the Mkomazi Rhino Sanctuary trackers.  Rose, one of the first females that arrived here in Mkomazi, had given birth to her second calf!  We all went down there and watched her drink with her baby calf - a girl.  Excellent news.  These early days for rhino calves are always worrying.  There are hyenas out there, as well as another aggressive female rhino who can take a dislike to another female's calves.  So although we are delighted, we still have many months to go before we can breathe a sigh of relief.
