What a difference a year makes!We were blessed to see Anan, the captivating little rhino who weighed about as much as I did when we saw her in January 2010.
Still very much a rhino child, but well on her way to the 6,000 pound mark she'll reach as an adult. She's eating hay and rhino pellets now.
I was astounded at how she'd filled in, filled up, grown overall. She even has a nice little horn!
My friend Sandy Brown, who was in another group visiting the barn before we did, was lucky enough to see Anan nurse from Zenzele, and she shared this photo with me. Ack ack ack!! She has to lie down to nurse now!

Just thought you'd enjoy a little follow-up on the magical rhino girl Anan and her beautiful mother Zenzele. Many thanks to Sandy Brown!
I'm just back from the Space Coast Birding and Wildlife Festival in Titusville, Florida. Took both kids with me. We had the most delightful time on Florida's beaches and in her scrubland. Oooh. That doesn't sound so good, does it? Put it this way. We loved Florida, and I'll tell you all about it as soon as I can. Until then, please read FloridaCracker's post about the meeting of two like-minded bloggers. And then make sure you bookmark his blog, because it is the BEST, and not just because he said nice things about me and my babies. If you like animals, nature, food, funk, fun, Florida, and graceful, sometimes loopy writing, check him out.
