Have you seen this rhino on Tinder? Here’s the explanation

What the actual…?

If seeing a random rhino pop up on your Tinder account while doing your regular swipe sesh has left you scratching your head, well, you’re about to get some answers.

Sudan, who is described as “one of a kind” on his bio, might not be looking for a hookup love with humans like many Tinder users but he is looking for something just as long-lasting: survival.

The endangered rhino is the world’s last white male, and Kenya’s Ol Pejeta Conservancy has teamed up with Tinder in a bid to save the species from extinction. They’re aiming to raise $9 million to help with the rhinos’ plight.

And no pressure, but it seems Sudan is basically going to be the saviour of the animal kingdom if he matches with one of the 17,000 eligible female white rhinos still living.

“I don’t mean to be too forward but the fate of my species literally depends on me,” his bio reads.

(We always did like a superhero.)

Not only that, Sudan’s got some qualities we wish other guys on Tinder would possess.

Among those listed on his profile are: Working well under pressure (Tick! No one likes a stress-head), is a fan of eating grass (Tick! Dinner dates would be super cheap) and likes to spend time chilling in the mud (Don’t we all, Sudan? Don’t. We. All.)

For those who like to visualise things, he’s added his height and weight — “6ft tall and 5,000lbs if it — to his profile.

Proving he’s also well-versed in the art of emoji use, Sudan has punctuated it all with a little smiley face and rhino emoji.

Too cute. We’ll be swiping right, for sure.
