Baby Rhino named Kufara

Taronga Western Plains Zoo’s bouncing new Black Rhino calf has now been named Kufara, meaning “happiness” in the African Shona language.

Kufara proved to be the most popular name with Channel 7 Sunrise viewers Sunrise viewers and is definitely very fitting considering the amount of happiness she is providing to staff and visitors alike.

Kufara is getting more and more confident with every day and will now take a banana from the keeper’s hand.  She is always mimicking her mum’s behaviours like rolling in the mud and eating leaves from branches.  But they are all positive behaviours, which is good to see.
