Rhino – Really?

You can probably imagine the phone call!
“We’d like you to photograph a rhino, it’s getting on a plane”.

“Nuh, you’re having a laugh”, and a bad one as you are 4 days past April Fools.
But true it was.

Orana Park was sending a bachelor rhino to Canberra, along with two from Hamilton Zoo. It has been trained and habituated to it’s transport cage for the last three months. Last night was the cummulation of all that effort by the dedicated staff at Orana Park, before he was loaded onto a truck and being flown by Jumbo Jet to Australia.

Kind of cool huh? Being watched by cheetah, I thought was especially neat!
