“Records show that Fausta lived longer than any rhino on the planet and made due in the Ngorongoro, free-going, for over 54 years” before she was moved to a haven in 2016, said the announcement.

Her wellbeing started to weaken in 2016, when we had to place the creature in imprisonment, after a few assaults from hyenas and extreme injuries,” it included.
