It’s been four months since we experienced cuteness overload courtesy of a newborn baby rhinoceros born at Walt Disney World’s Animal Kingdom. The sweet little calf is a white rhinoceros — an endangered species that faces near-threatened status — and he’s been hanging behind the scenes with his mom, Kendi, since October.
But on Feb. 23, 4-month-old Ranger made his big public debut when he joined his herd at Disney’s Animal Kingdom and strutted his stuff for Disney World guests for the first time.
On his big day, Ranger joined the crash (the official name for a rhino herd) out on the savanna on Kilimanjaro Safaris. The attraction at Disney’s Animal Kingdom takes guests on an 18-minute “safari” in an open-air vehicle across the 110-acre Harambe Wildlife Preserve that’s home to 34 species of live animals, including Ranger’s herd of white rhinos.
You can see Ranger, who was named in honor of the wildlife rangers who work to protect endangered rhinos around the world, getting used to his little (or not so little) legs in this adorable video shared on YouTube by Disney.
