At ZSL Whipsnade Zoo Southern white rhinoceros Tuli was treated to a heart-shaped mother's day banquet with her calf Nandi. The seven month old calf was treated to their favorite treats of hay and pellets.

Team leader Mark Holden said: “Tuli has been an incredible mum to Nandi over the past seven months and it’s wonderful to be able to celebrate her, as well as mums everywhere.  


“Nandi is a very curious and boisterous calf, with loads of energy, so it must be a pretty tiring job for Tuli, keeping tabs on her all the time.  


“Hay and pellets may not be every mum’s dream breakfast, but for a rhino mum, this is the perfect start to the day. If she’s really lucky, Nandi will allow her a nice quiet day of grazing and maybe even

a nap!” 

Mother Tuli gave birth to the calf on August 21st 2021.
