The White Rhino was nearly extinct 100 years ago, numbers have recovered somewhat (but still to a fraction of original populations) however once again they are under intense threat from poaching for horns, even in well protected parks such as Kruger National Park. This young animal was taking a rest while his mother was drinking. Note the Red-billed Oxpecker on his back!
