Emmitt, a Southern White Rhinoceros at Fossil Rim, celebrated his birthday on Nov. 1. Emmitt officially turns 6 years old on Nov. 5. He stands about 5 feet tall at his shoulders and weighs an incredible 4,000 lbs.

Fossil Rim visitors were treated to Rhino cake and toured the Rhino Barn. A few lucky visitors met Emmitt up close.
