Royal Petites Animals

Sweet, soft and fond of shoots, leaves, and mud wallows, RenÈ hails from the southern regions of Africa (Cote d’Ivoire to be exact) where his family rules with wisdom, kind acts, and fairness for all. Like most rhinos he doesnt see so well, but he’s an excellent listener, content to offer quiet companionship by the bedside or on the bookshelf.
