Rhinoceros escapes from Howletts Wild Animal Park Ice Age exhibition

by Lauren Abbott

A woolly rhinoceros has escaped from a Kent wild animal park.

And if you can spot it you'll be in with a chance of winning a fantastic prize.

The prehistoric creature, known as a Coelodonta (meaning hollow tooth) is just one of the beasts to have settled in the new Animals of the Ice Age exhibition at Howletts Wild Animal Park in Bekesbourne near Canterbury.

But this one has left his outdoor exhibit and taken to the streets of Kent.

The public is advised to approach with extreme caution but anyone able to take a quick photo of the terrifying beast and post to social media using the hashtag #IceAgeOnTour, could win a bunch of Ice Age related goodies plus a family pass to Howletts Wild Animal Park.

Can you spot this creature roaming the roads of Kent?
