Fresh off the hooves of the news that an endangered white male rhino calf was born earlier this week at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park, we are thrilled to share a sneak peek of the newborn.

The video below features endearing moments as mother Kendi bonds with her playful, yet-to-be-named baby. He is curious, loves his afternoon naps and has started sparring with his mom. 

We hope you enjoy this look at the beauty of nature as much as we did. The young rhino will join the herd at Disney’s Animal Kingdom in the coming weeks.
