A baby white rhino has been busy meeting some of West Midland Safari Park’s larger and very inquisitive inhabitants.
Two-month-old Ekozu and his mum have been exploring every corner of the African section of the four-mile drive-through safari. Naturally, this meant bumping into a variety of very curious animals.
First to investigate their new, tiny companion were the giraffe. Gentle by nature, mum, Ailsa, seemed at ease as female giraffe, Faida, slowly bent her neck to get a closer look.
They came nose to nose, which was a bit too close for the youngster, who boldly attempted a quick nudge to show who is boss.
Next on the scene were the Congo buffalo. Like all cattle, they were extremely inquisitive and each seemed to take it in turns to test just how close they could get to baby Ekozu.
The rhino’s mum was a bit more wary this time and seemed to have had enough of their nosey nature, so after a few grunts and a brief stand off, the buffalo soon trotted away to get on with their day.
