Born on the reserve, Courtney suckled with mum (Mish) until 2.5 to 3-years old. Named after Courtney Keffen who sadly passed away in August 2016. Ms. Keffen, 22 years old at the time of her passing, was an outstanding example of strength and determination and a friend of the reserve. Courtney (the rhino) is a cheeky character and a former member of the beloved “Naughty 6”, a herd of rhino that stayed together and acted quite cheeky.
Courtney is quite a needy rhino and often pushed away by other rhino on the reserve. In 2019 he paired with Sweet Chilli who is very patient with all rhinos on the reserve. He is quite nosey and will often walk up to the vehicle to check what is going on.
