A new baby rhino

As the sun was starting to bring warmth on my guests on the morning game drive, the animals like giraffes, kudus, impalas started appearing from the thick bushes. Birds were doing their calls, advertising their territories. When just around the corner of a junction we sported a massive female white rhino and next to it we saw an animal that we thought was a warthog, but only to find it was a less than 12 hours new baby rhino, unable to even walk properly, you could even see through the small gaps of the ribs. The mother was not so comfortable with us and decided to lead the young one into the bushes. An amazing sighting one I will not forget.
