One thing that transcends the line between the human race and the animal kingdom is the intrinsic need for family and community. For one baby Rhino named Ringo, family is the most important thing in his life. Ringo's mother rejected him as an infant, leaving the little Rhino all alone. He isn't alone for long, however, because a new family finds him soon after.

A rescue team with Ol Pejeta Conservancy finds Ringo and takes him back to their sanctuary to rehabilitate him. The calf is soon back on his feet and rehydrated. Ringo needs 24/7 care from his new family at the sanctuary, and the workers are-all-too-happy to oblige. With their help, Ringo is learning how to be a proper Rhino.

Wallowing in mud is essential for Rhinos in the wild, but Ringo doesn't seem to like mud very much. Not to worry though, his keepers are teaching him how to roll in the mud with the best of them! Ringo also gets plenty of exercise and is fed five-to-six times each day. In a few years, with any luck, Ringo will be released back into the wild to live out his days, healthy and free! Watch the video, below, to see for yourself how Ringo spends his days.
