White rhinoceros mother and calf

White rhinoceroses. Female white rhinoceros (Ceratotherium simum) with her calf. A female white rhinoceros gives birth to one calf every 3 to 4 years, after a gestation period of around 17 to 18 months. White rhinoceroses live in the savannas and grasslands of southern Sudan and South Africa. As they must drink daily and enjoy wallowing, their ranges always include at least one watering place. The adults feed on grass, using their broad lips to graze. Due to extensive hunting for their valuable horns, white rhinoceroses are now highly endangered. Photographed at the Mkuzi Game Reserve, South Africa

This print showcases the tender bond between a white rhinoceros mother and her precious calf. The female white rhinoceros, known scientifically as Ceratotherium simum, gives birth to a single calf every 3 to 4 years after an astonishingly long gestation period of approximately 17 to 18 months. These magnificent creatures inhabit the vast savannas and grasslands of southern Sudan and South Africa, always ensuring their territories encompass at least one watering hole as they rely on daily hydration and indulging in refreshing mud baths. With their broad lips, adult white rhinoceroses graze upon the lush grass that sustains them. Tragically, these gentle giants face imminent danger due to relentless hunting for their valuable horns. As a result, they have become highly endangered species desperately in need of protection. Captured within the picturesque Mkuzi Game Reserve in South Africa, this photograph serves as a poignant reminder of the fragile existence faced by these remarkable animals. It portrays not only the vulnerability but also the strength embodied by this rare African mammal species. The image encapsulates both wonder and concern for these horned herbivores, emphasizing the importance of conservation efforts aimed at safeguarding their future survival. Science Photo Library has beautifully captured this moment in time—a testament to nature's splendor that must be cherished and preserved for generations to come.
