And this is one BIG baby!
A Sumatran rhino calf was born June 23rd and the baby boy weighed 60-70 pounds.
60 to 70 POUNDS! That's one tough mama!
The calf's papa, Andalas, was born at the Cincinnati Zoo in 2001, the first rhino born in captivity in 112 YEARS!!!
Now housed at the Sumatran Rhino Sanctuary, he and Ratu have a "tiny" bundle of joy!
The calf is surely welcome to a species in desperate need of help. There are currently less than 200 Sumatran rhinos in the wild and this is the first calf born in an Asian facility in 124 years.
Congrats to the new parents
