WHITE RHINO BABY by Safari Ltd.®
Although white rhinos are the largest species of rhino in the world, this little one still has a lot of growing to do! Did you know white rhinos are actually a dark gray color, and many believe the “white” in their name actually comes from a mistaken translation? Female white rhinos generally have only one calf, which can weigh up to 150 pounds. Although they’re very large when they’re born, infants still rely on their mothers for protection from predators. Thankfully, young white rhinos are very rarely preyed upon because their mothers are incredibly strong and protect their calves at all costs.
Scientific Name: Ceratotherium simum
Characteristics: Hand painted and crafted by specialists, all Safari figurines capture the true-to-life details unique to each animal. If you look closely at the tail and ears of this white rhino baby, you can see they have the same type of hair as humans!
Size and Color: 2.93 inches long and 1.95 inches tall, this white rhino model is a little smaller than a deck of cards on its side and depicts the species’ dusty slate gray skin color. As long as it has its mother and some fresh greens, this baby rhino will be happy wherever you decide to put it!
Recommended for ages 3 and up.
