Two-month-old Charlees, whose name is Hindi for Charlie, makes her public debut at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park after a rainstorm came through San Diego County this past weekend. The sunshine, combined with her first opportunity to explore the 40-acre Asian Savanna habitat, was a perfect mix for fun. She spent the morning running around meeting the rest of the park's seven-member greater one-horned rhino herd. Charlees is the 61st greater one-horned rhino born at the Safari Park since 1975, making the park the foremost breeding facility in the world for this species.
