A baby rhino took her first mud bath after spending a month indoors to keep warm.
Rukuru, who was born in December, ventured outside at the Port Lympne Reserve in Lympne near Hythe, following her mother's lead.
Within minutes, the youngster was quick to learn a key rhino habit of mud-bathing after watching how it's done.
Mum wallowed in the mud which then enticed Rukuru to join in, despite being a tad wary and unstable, she soon got the hang of it.
The new arrivals parents are mum, Nyasa, and dad, Sammy.
Rukuru is Nyasa’s second calf and the 36th Eastern Black rhino to be born at Port Lympne.
This healthy rhino birth is another addition to The Aspinall Foundation’s breeding programme of endangered animals.
