Wade: I saw two interesting documentaries over the weekend. One was in French about Utukula Park in South Africa, which breeds white lions (I know you don't like that term) for reintroduction to the wild. I thought they had a pair of white tigers, but I couldn't confirm that on the internet. They definitely have at least one orange tiger. I also saw a documentary about White Oak Plantation in Florida. They have I think 12 southern white rhino and have had 25 born there. They also have Indian rhino, black rhino, and okapi. Take care. Sincerely Paul PS: There are now 5 or 6 northern white rhino in captivity in Kenya.

White Oak Plantation is quite an extraordinary place. Does anyone know what becomes of the animals when it is sold? Do they go with the property, or will they be moved, or relocated back to their prospective zoos?
