Original text on this topic:
On Jillai's death all the rangers conducted a major search, and after a full day her small calf was recovered about 800m away. This was most interesting as it proved that black rhino do hide their calves and go to water, which has previously been reported but never one hundred percent confirmed. The little calf, Larangoi, is now being raised, and to date is fat and strong. Special mention must be made of Daphne Sheldrick, Jill Woodley, Susannah Rouse and the David Sheldrick Wildlife Appeal who have been of invaluable help in raising this orphan.
