Larger Than Life

Since the opening of Toyota Elephant Passage—which moved our Asian elephant bachelor herd and greater one-horned rhinos to a new multi-species habitat—Mahali the hippo and Rudy the black rhino have had their habitat mostly to themselves. Now, with only our cinereous vultures to compete for their fans’ attention, these two princely pachyderms are kings of their respective hills! 

Visit Mahali as he frolics in his pool or enjoys a cooling wallow in the mud. And don’t miss seeing Rudy as he explores his spacious and shady new yard, which recently underwent some exciting rhino-vations.
