Welcoming our

WHITE RHINO

now introducing...
Sebastian and Killian the Southern White Rhinos! Sebastian is a super snuggle bug that loves being pet behind his ears! Killian is more sass than snuggles! While there are many of these guys in the United States right now, they are running out of space for them, so we here at the Ox Ranch are happy to house these guys for the next 40+ years! Needless to say they are already spoiled. We’re very happy and proud to be a part of these guys' conservation success story, and are excited to document them growing up for years to come!
