Everyone wants to get outside in the warming weather! Plenty of animals took advantage of this mini heatwave to head out and play, including baby black rhino King, who's now tipping the scales at 579 pounds. Thanks to Keeper Marisa Elizalde for these fun photos.
Baby rhino King and mom Kapuki decided to explore the snow in their outdoor yard at the Harris Family Foundation Black Rhinoceros Exhibit today.
King seemed eager to romp in the relatively warm weather.
Kapuki got into the play as well, dipping her horn into the snow. Unfortunately, black rhinos in the wild are facing a conservation crisis due to poaching for their horns. Lincoln Park Zoo is proud to help conserve this amazing species.
