Oh wow what a fantastic mom she is! That is why Rhino’s NEED their horns so should be left alone. Thank you so much for the info & stunning pictures/video Amy. I hope all those beauties will be safe <3

I think that the best moms are the elephants. Amy, will you be there at Londolozi at the beginning of June. I would love to meet you.

I thank you from my heart for this blog. Amy, I have a tattoo of an Indian rhino on my ankle so I carry them with me always. Each time I have returned to Londolozi, my soul is renewed while in the presence of these magical creatures.

A lovely article, Amy. I especially love the photo of the young calf learning to control his mouth – the picture really captured a fascinating and amusing expression.

Amy – this is a super article and a completely new concept for me – the fostering of young in the wild. Thanks for making us aware and I would love to know which animal would be the best Mum – can you tell us? Or shall we just wait to learn for ourselves?

Hi Jenny. Thank you, I’m so glad you enjoyed the post. Sadly there is no simple answer to your question. All the mothers out here take care of their young in their own special way. And that even includes the African Rock Python. I think sometimes its just easier for us to see it in animals such as elephants or leopards because they care for their young in a way that we recognise.
