Maryland Zoo Welcomes 4-Year-Old Southern White Rhino, Jaharo

The Maryland Zoo in Baltimore is home to a 22-year-old rhino, Stubby, who will soon receive a new companion at the advice of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums. The 4-year-old white rhino, Jaharo, will join the elderly rhino in the African Watering Hole habitat, as gradual physical introduction is occurring behind the scenes.Jaharo was born at a nonprofit, private conservation center located in Ohio. White rhino is actually an English mistranslation of the Dutch word “weit”, meaning wide.

White rhinos have been brought back from the brink of extinction. While the Southern white rhino primarily lives in South Africa, the Northern white rhino are exiguous and scattered throughout a small number of zoos and in the wild.

Visitors can view Jaharo from 10 a.m. to lunchtime.
