“The 45-year-old had spent most of the past two weeks lying in his pen due to discomfort from a deep wound on his right hind leg. His keepers had wondered whether it might be time to put him down.

But Stephen Ngulu, Ol Pejeta’s veterinarian, said they had managed to bring the infection under control with painkillers and antibiotics, and Sudan had regained his healthy appetite.”

Glad to see!

I read that they can live up to about 40 years so this one must have had a good life to be so old.

#2 Only two are left in the world, but luckily they are all together in the same conservation park in Kenya.
