Children tend to have a favourite toy or blanket that they refuse to sleep without. That also seems to be the case for Apollo, an orphan black rhino rescued a year ago. A video of the baby rhino sleeping with his favourite blanket has tugged at the heartstrings of many. Chances are, the video will leave you misty-eyed too.
Shared on Twitter by Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, the clip shows Apollo sleeping peacefully with said blanket – that is actually a mattress – covering his head.
“Orphaned black rhino Apollo might have grown apace since he was first rescued a year ago but his love for his comfort blanket (read mattress), which he hoists over his head like a tent, is just as strong,” explains the caption alongside the video.
