    This two-month-old Rhino named Charlees made her public debut at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park Tuesday under bright blue skies.

    A two-month-old rhino named Charlees – which is Hindi for Charlie – made a very happy public debut at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park on Tuesday.

    After a rainy weekend, Charlees was able to enjoy bright and blue skies during her energetic public appearance. She spent the morning running around the 40-acre Asian Savanna habitat at the Park, eagerly exploring her new surroundings.

    Charlees also got to meet the rest of the park’s greater one-horned rhino herd, which is well-established with seven members.

    Charlees is the 61st greater one-horned rhino born at Safari Park since 1975. The Park is the foremost breeding facility in the world for the species.
