A new baby just arrived at Zoo Miami. Officials announced the first ever successful birth of an incredibly rare greater one horned rhinoceros.
Natural breeding wasn’t working, says the zoo, so a special team of animal reproductive specialists came in from the South East Zoo Alliance for Reproduction and Conservation (SEZARC), which specializes in endangered species.
Zoo officials said there are less than 2,500 Indian rhinos left in the wild. “This very rare birth is not only significant for Zoo Miami, it is incredibly important to the international efforts to maintain a healthy population under human care of this highly vulnerable species throughout the world.”
