  2. Blue Footed Booby says:

    The last pic reminds of the painting ‘The Intruder’ by Andrew Wyeth.

  3. doomchild says:

    A rhino baroo! How anerable ❤

  4. The furry rhino must be on loan from Where the Wild Things Are.

  5. I agree with everyone else on this: that bebeh rhino was soooo fuzzulah. Who knew?!?

  6. Apparently it’s a rare Sumatran rhino. Even the adults are hairy.

  8. I think the Himalayan dog must have studied that Andrew Wyeth painting.

  11. Smartypants says:

    I love the 3rd rhino pic – “look at me, I’m marching!”

  12. anonymous coward says:

    whoa — a furry rhino?!?
    yes, i know, not very original… but i thought i was old enough to “know”
    that rhinos are not hairy, furry and whatnot. well, ‘guess i was wrong.

    …checking suzanne’s link, i notice the adult’s lack of fur. somewhat
    disappointed, it would have been neat to see an armoured fur coat
    running around. and then you start imagining herds of furry rhinos
    roaming the lands around yellowknife… eeek!

    Last pic: “I know I buried that bone somewhere down there…”

  14. AWW 😀 I just LOVE the lion picture 😀

  15. Same here — i never knew rhinos where fuzzy! 😮
