The little baby rhino who can't sleep

Monday, June 16, 2014

Le sigh, meet Gertje, the little baby rhino from South Africa. Sadly, his mom was killed by poachers so ever since that dramatic night, he has the hardest time sleeping alone. Luckily, all the wonderful animal rescue workers and his new buddy, Skaap, who is a sheep, don’t mind taking turns staying with him to ensure that Gertje gets a good night sleep. Ah, aren't people wonderful? Happy Monday morning, lovelies! xo

P.S: The video below will melt your heart!

P.P.S: Remember this elephant nursery in Kenya?

Oh heart melted. We went on safari in South Africa a couple of months ago. It was horrible to think that we had to get back to our camp by a certain time each night, so as to avoid running into poachers. Horrible.
