A Boy and his Rhino
Two of my favorite sites in the whole wide web, Neatorama and TheCellar, are teaming up-- and with their superpowers combined, there's no doubt they'll be producing some stellar work. Anyway, here's the first of their joined posts: a pic of an 8-year old boy and his pet rhino Rupert.
If your interest is at all piqued, The Daily Mail has a great story on how the photos came about. Apparently, Rupert was orphaned during a flood in the Zambezi valley, so a vet brought the young rhino home-- where he behaved both like a dog, and like part of the family. (He was released back into the wild after a year, and sadly passed away from pneumonia a year and a half later).
The story's actually close to my own heart, since my granddad (who headed part of the forestry service in India), brought an orphaned bear cub home once, and as a little girl, my mom actually had a pet bear for few months?! Click here to see and read more at TheDailyMail.
