If the weekend is feeling too far away and you need a little boost to get you over that middle of the week 'hump', let these pictures of a newborn baby rhino fill your heart with joy.

The baby boy was born on 27 November at Aquila Private Game Reserve and Spa, a year after the surprise birth of two rhinos.

You can already see he has a bit of an attitude, play-fighting with his mother, his birth witnessed by the reserve's 24-hour rhino surveillance team of the Anti-Poaching Unit.

"This event is a great celebration in the fight against rhino extinction. Aquila Private Game Reserve and Spa is proud to have been able to bring the first rhino to the Western Cape in 250 years and in February 2005, announced the first rhino birth in the Western Cape in 250 years."

The ears though...
