The Most Eagerly Awaited Rhino Porn of All Time

7
In 2009 four of the world’s last seven northern white rhinos were moved from a zoo in the Czech Republic to Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Kenya. At the time conservationists expressed hope that returning the rhinos to semi-wild lives under their native African skies would help inspire the animals to mate and, if they were extremely lucky, save the species from extinction. No such luck. There were a few half-hearted couplings in early 2011, neither of which resulted in pregnancies, but for the most part, the rhinos showed little to no interest in breeding. Maybe they had spent too much time in captivity. Maybe they were getting old. Maybe they just sensed that they were the last of their kind and wanted to go quietly into the night. But now something incredible has happened. Not only have two rhinos suddenly started expressing interest in each other, they have actually gone ahead and mated. Ol Pejeta Conservancy posted this bow-chicka-wow-wow video on April 30: VIDEO: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4kSv7sHpp7Y STORY: http://blogs.scientificamerican.com/extinction-countdown/2012/04/30/the-most-eagerly-awaited-rhino-porn-of-all-time/
