Original text on this topic:
Rhino. The orphaned male black rhino calf, Larangoi, is doing really well and bravely expands his territory. He no longer comes back to Ian and Jane's house to spend the night in the stable but lives out with his keepers, who camp wherever he chooses to spend the night. He is now 18 months old and still fed milk and horse cubes twice a day; this is planned to continue for another six to nine months. He feeds for most of the early part of the night and then comes and puts himself in between his two sleeping keepers for security! He is obviously a thinker and should have a future within the Lewa population. Both he and us owe a big thank you to Daphne Sheldrick and Susannah Rouse, who provide the financial and logistic support to look after him.
