You have already met the sweet rhino baby in the Yorkshire Wildlife Park but now we know his name, too – Rocco!

Ciao Bello!

It’s amazing to see how fast this cute rascal can run!

  1. Dear Sheila, Mervi and Philip!
    It’s always remarkable how cute and droll the children of mighty pachyderms like elephants and rhinos are. Little Rocco is no exception and is just at the age where he is a source of joy for the visitors with his capers – and of course the pride and joy of his mum and the YWP.
    Thank you for the lovely update!

    Hugs

    Rocco is an adorable little rascal. No wonder he’s all the visitors’ darling now.

    Thank you so much for the lovely photos of Najuma and her son!

    Hugs from Mervi
