Pfftt!! Of course it is a him! If it was a girl, she'd come in, pose, look at her reflection in the mirror, sway this way and that, wondering if it was the reflection that made her look... walk off, come back, remembering that she actually wanted to come down for a drink.

Him? Comes, drink, walk off. Done and dusted!

Marius, I am not sure how a vechile could shine a light on the Addo cam, but one could use a spotlight from the underground birdhide which is right at the waterhole.

How about Blackie for a name, but spelt as for a girl rhino, like for eg Blacki or Blacquie :twisted:

Agree Rookie should have a lot of say in this :lol:

Marius, there is another waterhole close by (I am sure) she would use to check her appearance in before coming forward for the entire world to see :roll:

How about "Bennett" the Black Rhino - it's a latin name used for either sex which means "little blessed one" or "Brasen" the Black Rhino - it's an american name used for either sex which means "gift from God"

Both are in light of the terrible rhino-poaching saga, our new friend can be our glimmer of hope who reminds us what we fighting for!!

- just ideas, will find some more!
