The orphaned baby rhino is comforted by a rescued zebra at a wildlife sanctuary, where they live together.

They met at the Care for Wild Rhino Sanctuary in South Africa and soon became best friends. When the two people were alone, they relied on each other for comfort and strength to make it through. Because of their inspiring story, people worldwide have fallen in love with them.

Daisy and Modjadji both had a very hard time living their lives. There were a lot of odds against them, but they worked together and now thrive at the sanctuary they call home. Rescuers found Daisy in the Kruger National Park when she was less than a day old, so they took her home. She was taken to the sanctuary right away by helicopter. Her chances of survival were very low, though. They didn’t give up on her.

“She was found and rescued during a routine operation in the Kruger,” the sanctuary said on Facebook. “She was just 12 hours old when she came in on Thursday.” “Because she can’t stand, she is very weak and vulnerable.” Hourly, this little calf is getting fed. At this point, the team works in shifts so that there is always someone to help her. We have a long way to go, but “every rhino is important.”

When Modjadji was brought in, Daisy was already at the sanctuary’s intensive care unit. Daisy’s story isn’t any different. The zebra foal was found in South African fields during a storm after she got separated from her family. She was found by a group of people. She began her road to recovery in the sanctuary right after she got there. It wasn’t just her. It was love at first sight between Daisy and her new friend as soon as they met. That helped them get over any obstacle that came their way.

It said: “She has become friends with little Daisy and is really giving her a lot of comforts.” “She is very gentle with her, and they already seem to be friends.”

Daisy and Modjadji have been together for almost two months now. They found all the comfort they didn’t have in each other, which helped them both get better faster than they would have otherwise.
