This is Daisy and, Modjadji. They are good friends and are helping each other heal at the “Care for Wild Rhino Sanctuary.”
Daisy was found when she was only a few hours old, weak, struggling, and all alone in the Kruger National Park in South Africa. Then she was moved to the local sanctuary’s intensive care unit, where the staff was looking after her during her recovery.
She needed care for 24hours including feeding and treatments to make sure her immune system and body temperature were maintained at a healthy level.
Soon after Daisy was admitted, someone who will be going to be a healer was admitted there too. But she had no idea. That was Modjadji. Modjadji was admitted to the sanctuary’s ICU at the end of November after being found motionless and barely breathing on the reserve after heavy rain and storm. At that time Modjadji was thought to be just a week old. The pair quickly formed a close relationship. They became family to each other. When they grow stronger and braver, their curiosity got the best of them. Louwen Bowker said that Modjadji is having a fantastic company for Daisy and is very affectionate to her.
Within a month they became good sisters. They seem more than friends. Even they cuddle together at night. It gives them comfort and security. That also helps them t prevent too much human contact with them.
