Doesn't seem to be missing. That makes him so much more vulnerable :(

Wow, actually on second glance, alice, it's NOT missing. It's just difficult to see. Check out the second photo.

Hmm, alicelongmartin, good observation! It appears so.

Emma, you might know already, but these rhinos are classified as vulnerable. Good spotting.
