ROYAL OAK, Mich. (WJBK) -

The Detroit Zoo is home to two of the largest land mammals on Earth.

Jasiri and Tamba, two male white rhinoceroses, arrived in 2005 as the first of their species to live at the Detroit Zoo.

Jasiri ("courageous" in Swahili) often shows his playful side by ganging up on his toys while running around the habitat. Tamba ("strut proudly" in Swahili) is the more dominant of the two and struts around with confidence and intelligence.

The rhinos can be seen outdoors and indoors in their habitat near the Japanese macaques.
