Baby Rhino's Pet Rock Is All He Needs To Have Fun

<p>HESCCheetahCentre / YouTube</p>

Monday is World Rhino Day, an important day to take time to think about the threats plaguing rhinos and how to save these iconic animals. In between, though, it's essential to take a break - and what better way to do that than watching this rescued baby rhino play with a rock?

Gertjie, a young rhino who was orphaned when his mother was killed by poachers, was adopted by the Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre in South Africa, where he's been recovering and regaining strength.

He loves mud baths, jogging and, of course, his pet rock.

Mostly, his pet rock.

Seriously, he loves this thing.
