For the first time, a rare rhino was born by artificial insemination at the Miami zoo
Zoo Miami is celebrating the birth of its newest addition: a rare baby rhino. The newborn is making history by being the first successful birth of the species as a result of induced ovulation and artificial insemination, according to the zoo. The rhino, whose gender is unknown, was born on Tuesday at 12:30 a.m. and is the first baby for Akuti, a 7-year-old greater one-horned Indian rhinoceros. Both mother and baby, which doesn't have a name yet, seem to be doing well, but the zoo will know more once the veterinary team is able to do a full exam.
