Riverbanks Zoo says goodbye to elephants and brings in rhinos


COLUMBIA, S.C.- A South Carolina zoo plans to send off two African elephants in order to bring in Southern white rhinos.

Riverbanks Zoo and Garden of Columbia announced Wednesday that 48-year-old Robin and 37-year-old Belle will soon join a larger herd. The zoo said the public can attend special activities before the elephants leave.

Southern white rhinos haven't lived at the zoo since 1989. The new exhibit is scheduled to open next year.
