      In 1997, the zoo had three white rhinos: Bull (m), Pistol (f), and Shaboola (f), the offspring of the first two.

      When this photo was taken in 2006, there were four white rhinos at the zoo: Bull (m), Yeki (m), Shaboola (f), and Leni (f). Bull, Shaboola, and Leni were together to (hopefully, and unsuccessfully) stimulate breeding. Due to behavioural issues, Yeki was a solitary rhino.

      How many rhinos are at the zoo now 2 or 1? Shaboola and Leni right?
    • Ungulate
      Actually, just one (Shaboola)
      Leni was returned to African Lion Safari earlier this year.

      Does the zoo plan on getting any more rhinos? and I noticed that the rhinos have there horns cut off why is that?
    • Ungulate
      I believe the zoo is trying to acquire some more white rhinos, but this takes time.
      Only one rhino at the zoo had "flat" horns - Yeki ... however, the horns were not cut off. He spend a lot of time rubbing the horns on objects (and ramming them ...), which wore them down to almost the level of his face.
