Rhino of the Week: Tatenda

There's a rhino in the bed!

There’s a rhino in the bed!

Marondera, Zimbabwe: Thought to be in a protected environment, 3 adult black rhinos and a baby were being housed in a stable like enclosure. But poachers know no bounds, and tragically slaughtered all the adults (including a pregnant female). The morning after the mayhem, little Tatenda was found hiding in fear.

He was nurtured and raised by a human mom, and taken in as family. Joining the family during breakfast, and befriending a warthog certainly didn’t make for a typical upbringing for Tatenda.

Animal Planet covered the touching story of Tatenda and the family who worked to rehabilitate this spectacular black rhino in “Theres a Rhino in my House.”
