Queen is unique: a beautiful, black rhino female, at two tons she is an entity. She is also very kind. Out in the bush with her youngster, she was approached by a solitary young bull whose mother had been killed by an elephant. Taking care of a young calf was enough responsibility and Queen tried to drive the orphan off. But he persisted and her innate maternal instinct won out. Queen took him into her crash – she was now the mother of two youngsters, both bulls.

The orphaned rhino followed them everywhere and they could be seen in the bush, this interesting and beautiful trio. Always keeping her young calf by her side, Queen is the vision of a true matriarch. The orphaned bull is old enough now to be on his own but he often comes to visit, and the three can be seen together walking across a pan headed for water.
