Ceratotherium simum - tooth eruption. First tooth eruptions occurred at 70 days; both left and right lower first premolars appeared. At 76 days the opposing upper premolars erupted. Both sets of eruption were accompanied by a rise in rectal temperature to 37.8? C (100F) and 38.4?C (101.1F) respectively, loss of appetite and diarrhoea. Cool water was provided to wallow in and clinical symptoms disappeared in 24 hours.
