Safe at Marwell

By SUE118
Marwell Zoo has 4 white Rhinos and I'm so glad they are safe. About 20 years ago I was lucky enough to have a background tour of Marwell and visited the Rhinos. They were lovely and came over to say hello and I was able to tickle one of them behind their ears. Their skin is so soft. This huge animal was like putty in my hands and one could see it was enjoying the tickling. It's such a shame they are endangered because of man's greed.
Apologies if I'm not comenting on your photo's and just voting, I'm finding after a day typing my fingers get more sore after having my operations so please don't be offended.
Thanks to Ron for his award yesterday.
Enjoy the weekend.
Sue

It was interesting to learn that their hide is soft and that they enjoyed the human touch.
Hope your fingers become more flexible soon again Sue.
