Keepers at Port Lympne Wild Animal Park in Kent had a special delivery recently when they welcomed Asani, a four year old black rhino to his new home. Asani travelled by road, in a journey lasting 8 hours, to arrive at his new home just outside Ashford.

Animal director Adrian Harland said: "Asani is settling in very well to his new home – he’s a very good looking rhino and I’m sure he will be popular with our female rhinos. He’s quite feisty, as a black rhino should be, so hopefully they won’t boss him around too much."
