Following observations of trembling and weak legs last month, veterinarian Dr Albertus Coetzee was called to examine Zac.
Zac received massage therapy and medication as well as increased mobility supplements and high-level monitoring. Zac recovered quite quickly but remains under close observation. Both Zac and Kai now join Arthur’s group during the day but return to the boma at night to sleep. The increased exercise and stimulation appear to be helping Zac and it is certainly assisting with burning Kai’s endless energy! Whilst there is still some stiffness in his legs, in himself Zac is full of beans! He does not tolerate nonsense from the other rhinos and makes sure to assert his dominance and enforce his position in the crash.
