The Last Hope

By notsuigeneris
Hope I get this right. Two of these rhino are the last Northern Whites in the world, and both are female. The last male died some years ago, but his semen was frozen for future use. The intention is to harvest eggs from the females and carry out in vitro fertilization, but unfortunately neither of them is capable of carrying the embryo. That is where the third rhino, also a female, comes in. She's a Southern White and will carry the baby. Let's hope they succeed.
