#WeighInWednesday: Rubybelle hits 200kg!
#CareforWild’s youngest orphan has hit another milestone and now weighs an amazing 200kg! Little Rubybelle is continuing to thrive and is on her way to becoming a big, strong rhino.
Rubybelle arrived at our sanctuary in August, at less than a month old, after her mother was poached on a reserve near the Kruger. Fortunately, she was rescued quickly and within hours of her mother being poached, little Rubybelle was already in the safety of Petronel’s arms. Thanks to her quick rescue, she drank from a bottle quickly and was in a good physical condition.
Rubybelle has now overcome her trauma and bonded with two other orphans - Khanya and Rose. Although they are bigger and older than her, she feels safe and comforted by their presence.
Rubybelle is still patiently waiting to be adopted. If you would like to adopt Rubybelle and follow her on her rehabilitation journey, visit our website in our bio (www.careforwild.co.za) and contact us to find out more!
