Thank you, Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre (HESC) for posting this absolutely adorable video of baby rhino Esme and her BFF, David the dog! They are definitely enjoying each other’s company, the cool mud, and just having a chill day.
According to a post by HESC, “David and Esmé spend every waking moment together… Esmé follows David around whenever they are let out of the boma. They both enjoy being in the sun. We are happy to see Esmé doing well, and we are glad we could help this little one.”
HESC is dedicated to the conservation of rare, vulnerable or endangered animals with a special focus on the cheetah. The organization also provides a safe haven for orphaned and sick animals and serves as an education center, where the public can learn more about the animals and the organization’s work.
Update 9/14/20: David and Esme are still BFFS! Check out this video of them having a fun time together!
