Southern White Rhino (Carrie)
My name is Carrie! I’m one of the youngest of the Australia Zoo rhino family and I still have lots of growing to do. I will eventually weigh up to 1.5 tonnes. Crikey!
My favourite food is grass and I like to munch on it during my days exploring my home on the African savanna. It can be tiring for a young rhino like me, so I will often stop for a snooze throughout the day!
Just like my dad, DJ, I am very affectionate. I love to roll onto my back and get belly rubs from my keepers! I have discovered a mud bath (I think you humans call these ‘facials’). I just love rolling around and covering myself in mud to cool myself down, then, I can run around and play without feeling overheated.
I love meeting all of our Zoo guests so make sure you drop by the African savanna and say g’day to me and my family!

Most of the inclusions in your adoption pack are online, meaning that your adoption is not only helping one of our animals, but the environment too!
All animal adoptions are a single payment and last for 12 months from the date of purchase. You can choose to renew your adoption after this time and continue your support of our animals and wildlife conservation efforts.
If you would like to contribute more than the specified adoption amounts, you are more than welcome to do so! Please contact us by email or phone to find out more.

* Each guest pass is valid for a single day entry only, to be used within 12 months of adoption purchase. For Gold, Platinum and Ultimate adoptions, guest passes can be used for multiple single day entries for one person, or single day entries for up to the specified amount of people. For Gold or Platinum adoptions, if you are unable to use the included guest passes you can opt to swap the guest passes for a plush toy animal.
^ Subject to availability and must be pre-booked to avoid disappointment. Age, group size and animal restrictions apply; animal encounters are subject to the usual encounter terms and conditions for each animal. Due to health and safety restrictions, saltwater crocodiles are not available for guest encounters; another animal/species will be substituted.
Please note: While all of the animals available for adoption are usually on display at the Zoo and/or participate in encounters, adopting an animal does not guarantee the chance of seeing or meeting them if visiting the Zoo. Animal availability is subject to change; there may be times when animals may be temporarily off display due to unforeseen circumstances, such as veterinary check-ups or enclosure maintenance. If booking one of our amazing animal encounters to meet your adoptee, please advise staff of the animal you adopt at the time of booking.
Animal adoptions and associated elements are non-refundable, non-transferable and not redeemable for cash.
It is important to note that adopting an animal does not provide a company or organisation license to promote Australia Zoo across their channels. If you desire to include in advertising and/or collateral including your website, further discussions will be required. If interested, please let us know and we can organise a meeting. Thank you again for your support!
*Please allow up to 3 weeks for the delivery of your gift pack, if applicable.
