    I dare you…no, I take that back… I don’t think Mom would approve. :mrgreen:

  15. skippymom says:

    So, how did you lose your arm?
    Well, I was pinching a baby rhinoceros’s a**….

  16. good thing they’re born with only the nubule! otherwise, yeeouch!

  17. Mumma has her own well developed side eye acshun just quietly, so eye for 1 wouldn’t be pinching anything on that baby’s botty. Pinch at your own risk!

  18. My thoughts exactly!

  19. Nubule-hance? Nay. Bebbeh rhino-tock-hance please!

  20. *whispers* The rhinos are side-eyeing me.

  21. Sasha's Mum says:

    If he’d been born with the horn, it *would* have been Mom’s last stand!

    ana — the below is from wiki answers.
    Hopefully it provides at least a range / approximate.

    Most baby rhino, or calves, are born after 15 to 16 months of gestation, and usually, only one is born at a time. They weigh between 88 and 140 pounds,
    or (40 to 64 kilograms) on average,
