Rhinos find new home

Published: Tuesday 30 April 2002

Nepal has gifted a pair of rare rhinos to Japan as thanks for timely economic assistance rendered. The Himalayan kingdom is known among conservationists for its efforts to protect this creature. One of the rhinos, one-year-old Bikram, was found abandoned while the other, Narayani, is eight months old, and was captured from the wild. These rhinos would be kept at the Tama Zoological Park in Tokyo.
