A 9-week-old greater one-horned rhino calf made her debut at the San
Diego Zoo Safari Park today, under the watchful eye of her attentive
mother. The pair came out of the Park’s maternity corral, and mother
Alta led her calf around the Safari Park’s 40-acre Asian Plains habitat.
While the calf walked, a layer of young, pink skin could be spied
underneath the folds of her thickening, armor-like, dark gray top layer
of skin. More info.
Now some good news: Greater one-horned rhinos in Kaziranga have rebounded from 200 to 2,400! We’ve partnered with the International Rhino Foundation to introduce additional populations in Manas and Orang national parks.
