Rhinos at ZSL Whipsnade Zoo

Posted on


Hugo is a gentle giant who loves to swim! 
Meet Hugo!  He's a rhino and he lives at ZSL Whipsnade Zoo.  

The Rhinos of Nepal exhibit is home for ZSL’s greater one-horned rhinos, Hugo, Behan and Beluki.

Hugo is a gentle giant.  He loves to swim and loves to relax in his indoor pool, and to sit in the water and eat.  He loves a fuss, and he enjoys his training – so long as there are apples involved!

On the other hand, Behan’s favourite food is watermelon.  She is pretty relaxed, and loves attention – she’s a strong, independent woman, according to her keeper!

Beluki enjoys being showered with the hose and she loves to mud wallow.  She’s a rhino who likes the slower pace of life.

You can see the rhinos from a spacious viewing area, which allows you to get a close-up view of the rhinos inside.  You can also get a view of them outdoors in their paddock.  Go to the “maternity wing” and you’ll go through the specially designed watch tower, modelled on those that conservationists use to spot rhino in the field

Give a gift membership to ZSL Whipsnade Zoo and you’ll get unlimited visits during normal opening hours to both ZSL Whipsnade Zoo and ZSL London Zoo year round plus lots of other benefits besides!

Join ZSL today and support conservation with your gift.
