WATCH: Iowa Zoo’s New Baby Rhino Takes First Bath

Posted on

Baths = awesomeness!

That’s what the Blank Park Zoo‘s new baby rhino must have been thinking after taking her first bath this week.

There’s video of the 3-week-old black rhino’s full service wash down — courtesy of a hose held by a staffer — and judging by all the rolling on the floor going on here, we’re pretty sure this girl can’t wait for the next one.

First, this cautious cutie, who resides in Iowa, watches as her Mama goes through the animal car wash, staying close to her face to make sure everything is okay. When she realizes it is, she plops down on the floor and takes it all in.

A bath was definitely in order for the little one. Last month, the zoo gifted her with her first pumpkin to play with — it was picked apart, with a little help from Mom.
