DAY 7: Amazing trip to The Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden with my folks and my cousin.
He is one of only two Sumatran rhinos in all of North America - the other is his sister Suci who lives one habitat over.
They are the most endangered rhinoceroses in the world. I don’t feel like explaining it at the moment, ‘cause I’ll get facts wrong, but if you google “Sumatran rhinos north america” or “Sumatran rhinoceros Cincinnati Zoo” or something, it’s a very interesting story.
I feel so honored to have laid eyes on him and Suci. SUCH beautiful animals.
One of the sobering things about trips to the zoo is realizing how much harm we’ve already done.
