Chopper the Baby Rhino
February 21st, 2013
Chopper — all 584 pounds of him — made his public debut Saturday at the Albuquerque BioPark zoo. The playful rhinoceros calf charged several toys and interacted with zookeepers, entertaining the large crowd on hand. Chopper was born in October, back when he was a mere 132 pounds. He’s been settling into the rhino barn and large backyard well, and now he’s ready to explore the front yards and meet guests, the zoo says. He’ll venture into the front yards for a few hours each day.
