Ramat Gan rhino gets custom eye mask
After endless treatments, tests, disinfection treatments and ointments to treat a mysterious severe eye inflammation, Tinda the female rhinoceros is now sporting a custom-made mask around the Ramat Gan Safari, to help her heal from a bothersome infection.

Doctors discovered that Tinda, who has been at the Safari for 14 years, has been long suffering not only from a parasitic eye infection, but also from swarms of flies causing constant irritation as a result, Safari staff members said. As she continues to undergo treatment for the infection, Tinda happily wears the mask hand-crafted for her by her caretaker Neta, allowing her to see and wander comfortably without the intrusion of pests.
