This heart-melting moment of an excited baby rhino was captured by 37-year-old International Shipping Business Owner, Darren Sheer, while on Safari with his family.
Darren tells Latestsightings.com the story:
“While on a game drive their ranger saw a mom and baby rhino in the distance. The ranger stopped the safari vehicle on the gravel road, quite a distance from the two rhinos, and waited for the rhinos to come closer.”
“The mom and baby were slowly walking down the gravel road, when all of a sudden the baby rhino got super excited and started running up and down. Running quite close to the safari vehicle and then running back to its mom.”

“After all that excitement, the mom and baby walked through some mud puddles and off into the distance. Darren was grateful to be able to see this very rare and special moment. His advice to others is to sit back and enjoy any moment like this. Make sure you capture the moment with your own eyes and not only through a lens.”
“For Darren and his family, it was a heart melting-moment. It was almost like watching a new puppy find its feet.”
