Erica the Rhino Has Escaped the Wild and is here on the World Wide Web!

Welcome! You’re probably wondering who on earth Erica is and how she’s managed to escape the wild?! Well, in truth, she’s not a real rhino. She is one of many, life-sized, fibreglass models created by Marwell Zoo in celebration of their 40th anniversary, but Erica is unique…
