Zoo to get two new female rhinos

The Toronto Zoo plans to get two female southern white rhinos from South Africa.

They will join the Zoo’s only female rhino.

It will cost about $200,000, almost half of the zoo’s animal acquisition fund. Most of the cost stems from transportation and veterinary services.

Buying one white rhino costs $40,000.
