Yebonga, the Southern White Rhino’s New Look


Yebonga the 50-year-old southern white rhino is stepping out in style with her custom made fly mask, made by Horseware Ireland. Yebonga is among the oldest in her species survival plan, with the median life expectancy for southern white rhinos being in the mid 30s.

Yebonga’s custom see-through mask allows her to see her surroundings while benefiting from its protective covering. Being a geriatric rhino, Yebonga’s eyes are more sensitive to flies, light and dust, and this added layer helps to provide extra protection.
