Baby rhinos: even weirder-looking than British royals.

TomperBaby rhinos: even weirder-looking than British royals.

Most new parents want to talk about nothing but their babies. Not Prince William! He wants to talk about endangered rhinos. He agreed to let CNN and ITV interview him about Baby George — but only if he also got to talk about his “passion for Africa and his dream to save the world’s most endangered species.”

It turns out that Prince William is really into rhinos. And other endangered African animals. Reportedly, in the CNN/ITV interview, he’s wearing a shirt for Tusk Trust and talking about “how he hopes his son Prince George will one day embrace the family’s conservation work.”

We have to say, it’s kind of awesome that William is trading on media interest in his firstborn to talk about rhinos. Because you know what’s cuter than a baby human? BABY RHINOS. Even if they don’t get their pictures in Vogue.
