It's snow joke for rhinos

RHINOS Rumba and Rumbull are normally used to sunnier climbes.So when it started to snow earlier this month, the intrepid pair just had to go and have a look.The pair, who now live at Noah's Ark Farm Centre in Wraxall after being brought over from South Africa two years ago, took a tentative trip out in the white stuff.Noah's Ark owner Anthony Bush said: "It is fair to say they are more used to a warmer climate so we were intrigued to see how they would react to the snow as it is the first time they have ever seen it."Rumba trotted out but returned to the pen quite quickly whereas Rumbull hung around long enough to eat his food and then went back inside. It's fair to say neither of them particularly liked the snow - I think their feet got cold.
