Year: 1962
Description: The first orphaned Rhino ever to have been successfully hand-reared, certainly in Kenya, and probably in Africa. A bull, born in Tsavo East National Park in the early l960's and found near the Assistant Warden's house in the early hours of the morning, as a newborn, his mother obviously having fled when dawn broke and the first workers began to arrive. He had a shaky start, since the milk formula and husbandry had not yet been perfected, but Dennis and Yuilleen Kearney managed to get him through his first fragile year before he was transferred into the care of David and Daphne Sheldrick.
