This is the heart-warming moment a mother rhino gives her nine-day-old baby a gentle nudge under the chin as she introduces him to the rest of the family.
These amazing pictures of wildlife up close were captured at West Midland Safari Park, in Bewdley, near Kidderminster.
It has been an exciting week for the new baby rhino, Granville, as he met his new neighbours and was finally named.
Keepers decided that the curious youngster was ready to venture out and about to meet the rest of his family and the other creatures that inhabit the African Plains section of the safari drive-through.
For a tiny baby rhino, navigating his way around a new habitat with unusual inhabitants was very daunting, so he appeared a bit unsure at first.
But after some gentle coaxing from mum, eight-year-old Ailsa, the bouncing baby boy was soon seen charging around.
Granville met his Auntie Trixie, one of eight southern white rhinos at the Park.
He came nose-to-nose with older brother Ekozu and nuzzling watchful aunties, Trixie and Mtuba.
He was then seen going between the legs of his new giraffe neighbours in these amazing new pictures.

The calf has a rest after a busy day out and about. A southern white rhino like Granville would have no predators out in the wild, but at just days old, he could have been eaten by crocodiles, dogs and hyenas, which is why Mum Ailsa is there to look after him
