Mom’s Day got here early for Southern white rhinoceros Tuli, after zookeepers at ZSL Whipsnade Zoo ready a heart-shaped, breakfast banquet for her and her calf, Nandi.
The rhino mum and her seven-month-old calf have been handled to a feast of their favorite hay and pellets, organized within the form of a coronary heart, for Mom’s Day.

Staff chief Mark Holden mentioned: “Tuli has been an unbelievable mum to Nandi over the previous seven months and it’s fantastic to have the ability to have fun her, in addition to mums in every single place.
“Nandi is a really curious and boisterous calf, with a great deal of power, so it have to be a fairly tiring job for Tuli, preserving tabs on her on a regular basis.
“Hay and pellets will not be each mum’s dream breakfast, however for a rhino mum, that is the proper begin to the day. If she’s actually fortunate, Nandi will permit her a pleasant quiet day of grazing and perhaps even a nap!”
Born on 21 August 2021, Nandi was a welcome addition to the ‘crash’ of Southern white rhinos on the UK’s largest Zoo, in addition to to the European Endangered species breeding programme.
Guests can see Nandi and Tuli, in addition to Asian elephants, African lions, Amur tigers, and 10,000 different animals, for the proper, household day trip, this Easter college holidays at Whipsnade Zoo. Tickets might be booked upfront at zsl.org
