Now another plan is being considered: To extract a northern white rhino egg, fertilize it with frozen northern white rhino sperm and implant it the surrogate womb of a genetically different subspecies: Southern White Rhino.
The Southern White Rhino look almost identical to the Northerns, though they have a larger front horn, and they also prefer a grassy environment while the Northerns like denser bush.
But perhaps the biggest difference between the Southern and Northern White Rhino is their epic comeback story.
…If plans for a surrogacy attempt are approved, the Southern knack for survival might give a ray of hope to their near-extinct Northern cousins.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
