Our pair of African rhinos are named Melvyn and Phyllis. They are wonderful pets. We've had them for ages. They love to curl up by the fireplace on winter days like this. They come when called, and love to be scratched behind the ears. I like to take Melvyn for walks most mornings, and he gets very excited when he sees me moving toward the car with his leash in my hand. He loves going to the park, and he has special favorites among he other rhinos we meet there. My only criticism of Melvyn is that he becomes overly excited when we are riding in the car, and he sees other rhinos. I would say that rhinos make excellent pets. If they are properly trained and cared for they will return your affection, and can be trustworthy and enjoyable family members.
