Very fascinating images!
And my wife would call them cute!

I think he looks lovely ! A face showing all the mis-placed self-confidence of the very young. Good luck, little feller - you'll need it.

Cute is right. A newborn animal at the zoo increases the activity. The young ones tend to wander around and, of course, mama has to keep up with its whereabouts. A few years ago, four Malaysian Tigers were born at the zoo. They were a kick to watch.

Thanks for commenting. The new kid on the block was named Kevin. He does have that look of over confidence about him. I hope he leads a long life. He could end up at a different zoo after he matures. Four Malaysian Tigers born at this zoo in the past where eventually transferred to other zoos.

I'm very glad the zoo is successfully breeding rare animals, and spreading the gene pool. Probably too much to hope that they will be returned to the wild, though.

I don't know if that will be possible. It might be eventually. Black Rhinos population is up slightly, but they are still endangered.

Thanks for your nice comments. Fun to see for sure. Shot them all in jpeg. I went to my Granddaughters Volleyball tournament last weekend and I've quit shooting them in raw. I did not change the settings before going to the zoo.
