Just like humans, rhinos like a good pampering too! While we may use a plethora of products to keep us looking and feeling great, rhinos need just one – mud.
Mud helps our herd of rhinos keep cool on hot days and also acts like sunscreen, fly repellent and moisturiser! They’ll often mix the mud up using their horn, face or feet which helps make it wet and easier to spread all over their body. The easiest way to get completely covered in mud is to wallow – which is like taking a big mud bath! This is what Inkosi can be seen doing here in the Prideland’s habitat, and as well as reaping the health benefits, it’s also a fun activity for our older male!
