I am interested in buying a pet rhinocerous for my goddaughter as a birthday present (she just turned 3). Can anyone tell me where I can buy one, and how much I should expect to pay (I don't want to get ripped off!).
Also, while my friend is generally supportive of me buying a pet rhinocerous for his daughter, he did express some concern about the cost of maintaining one. About how much should he expect to have to pay per month to maintain it (food, training, vet bills, etc.)? We're just looking for approximate numbers. Thanks.
Seriously? Why don't you take her to buy a domestic pet such as a dog or cat? Why on earth do you want to purchase a rhinocerous? They are wild animals and belong in the wild. Wild animals are not for owning.
Most rhinoceros' are very very expensive. Like, maybe around a trillion dollars or so.
Instead I think maybe you should buy your goddaughter a stuffed rhino, and a "magic" wand. Tell her that if she wishes really hard, that she can use the wand to turn the rhino real. If it doesn't work, then you can just blame it on her. Tell her that if she can't wish hard enough to make the toy rhino real, then obviously she never really wanted a pet rhino as much as she thought she did.
You have tried the pound, right? That's where I got my giraffe. It was only around $120 (gotta love cheap Tuesdays). Plus the cost of vaccinations, of course.
Don't worry about food or anything like that, that's all relatively cheap. It's finding cute clothes (like those fashionable dog coats) that are the killers. It's almost like there's not a big market for giraffe jumpers and rhinocerous hats.
I've worked with Rhinos for the Zoo. They are loving and they love apples. They also don't know they hurt you or that stepping on your foot is a bad idea. I'm pretty sure you cannot get them unless you are a zoo because of the rhino horn poaching problem, which is very sad. Both the horn problem and not being able to have them as pets.
