Rhino arrives in Israel with a mission
One-and-a-half ton female from South Africa will live at the Ramat Gan Safari
A young South African female rhinoceros weighing one-and-a-half tons arrived in Israel Friday morning. She is being taken to the Ramat Gan Safari, where she will live in isolation for two weeks before being integrated into the existing rhino community.
With the help of a young male rhino who was recently born at the safari — which is also called The Zoological Center Tel Aviv — the South African female is expected to help enlarge the local rhino population.
