BALTIMORE (WJZ) — After spending most of his life at the Maryland Zoo, Stubby the rhinoceros is set to move to a new home at a private wildlife conservancy.

But like many things amid the coronavirus pandemic, his plans have changed a bit.

Luckily for Baltimoreans, that means there are more chances to visit him virtually before he heads for Florida.

The zoo has added several more virtual behind-the-scenes visits with Stubby, during which people will get to see him up close — and by close, the zoo means everything from his skin to the inside of his mouth!

Each virtual visit will cost $29 with the proceeds going toward animal care, the zoo said. Available times include Tuesday at 3 p.m., Wednesday at 10 a.m. and Thursday at 9:30 a.m.

Virtual visitors will not only get to see Stubby but also learn more about rhino conservation efforts and how the transport company will move him hundreds of miles away.
