That is One Big Baby

On July 13th, Busch Gardens Tampa Bay welcomed a baby white rhinoceros:

The female baby is the fifth white rhino born at Busch Gardens since 2004.

The baby weighed in at an estimated 140 pounds at birth, and she’ll gain approximately FOUR pounds EACH DAY until she reaches her Volkswagen-sized weight of 3,500 to 4,000 pounds. It’s safe to say that nobody will be putting baby in a corner.
