[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This little guy was playing in the safety of the two female rhinos protecting both it and the the other calf that was there. Looking at the size of the the two cows, no wonder the calf looks so proud and unafraid.

I think these are White Rhino (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White_rhino). One of the differences between White and Black rhino is the mouth. The White rhino has a wide square mouth, while the Black rhino a narrower and more pointly shape mouth.

No Cropping
Adjusted the levels
Removed some grass in front of the little ones face.
