There are now just three northern white rhinos on Earth, after the passing of 41-year-old Nola at the San Diego Zoo this weekend. The elderly female rhino was euthanized following a long battle with arthritis and, more recently, an infection in her hip. Zoo officials said in a statement that Nola had surgery on November 13 to drain an abscess from the bacterial infection, and her condition deteriorated in the days following the procedure. Nola is survived by three other elderly rhinos , all living on a preserve in Kenya.
