Baby rhino's day out

Two-month-old Indian rhino Charlees — which is the Hindi name for Charlie — jogs around the grassy 40-acre Asian savanna habitat that she shares with the rest of her herd during her public debut on March 20 at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park.

 

Endemic to Southeast Asia, the Indian rhino, also known as the greater one-horned rhino, is listed as an endangered species with only about 2,800 individuals left in the wild. The San Diego Zoo runs one of the most successful breeding facilities in the world for the species, and Charlees is the 61st Indian rhino to be born at the park since 1975.
