In the video, the rhino is initially standing inside a fenced enclosure. As a keeper comes near the place, it starts jumping like a puppy making the entire nonverbal communication absolutely wholesome for the social media users. 

Netizens hailed the unconditional love between the two citing their personal experience, with some of them calling it ‘sweet,' ‘nice,' and ‘cute.' However, many users also raised concerns about keeping animals in zoos – enclosed in a limited area. 

Across the world, about 302 zoos hold 1,037 rhinos as of 2018, according to Save The Rhino, a conservation organization.
