Baby Rhino

2 May

黄金週間 (Golden Week) has begun today.
And today is also my youngest daughter’s birthday. She’s thirteen now!
So now I officially have three teenage daughters! 😉

Yesterday, 上野動物園 (Ueno Zoo) in Tokyo showed their new 白サイ (White Rhino) baby to the public for the first time.

The 白サイの赤ちゃん (baby White Rhino) was born in the zoo on Monday, 20 April 2009 at 20時半 (8:30 PM).

Here’s a short clip that shows the baby rhino’s birth, first steps, and nursing for the first time:

The サイ (rhinoceros) has always been my favorite zoo animal. They look like living dinosaurs!

    My family always did birthday dinner at restaurant of choice. My brothers hated me because I always picked this Hot Dog restaurant. (I always have and always will love a great hot dog!)

      Your brothers may not have liked your choice…but your parents probably liked your very affordable birthday dinner!

    Happy 13th Birthday to your daughter. What are your plans of celebration? The rhinos do look like living dinosaurs i wonder which dinosaur species are they related to?
