Baby rhino enjoys first mud bath at Australian zoo

Video shared on social media by the Australian zoo on showed the one-month-old calf following her mother Bakhita around the enclosure and playing in the muddy water.

The calf born on February 24 was named Sabi Star after a flower found in Zimbabwe, the zoo said in a description associated with the video.

As the flower only blossoms during harsh, dry periods, the keepers felt the name signified the struggle for life faced in the wild by all living things, the zoo said.

The species is listed as critically endangered by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN).
