The Kid Should See This

Baby Indian one-horned rhino at the Bronx Zoo

There’s a new baby rhino at the Bronx ZooIndian one-horned rhinos Penny and Sanjay are new parents to a frisky female baby, the 13th rhino born at the Bronx Zoo since 1986. She weighs 120 pounds but she could grow to weigh more than 4,000 pounds — that’s about the weight of an average U.S. car

From the Bronx Zoo

Indian rhinos are native to the grasslands and swampy areas of northern India and southern Nepal. Fewer than 3,000 are estimated to remain in the wild, with nearly 70 percent of the population living in Kaziranga National Park in India. They are generally solitary animals except when mating or when females have young offspring.

Indian rhinos are designated as “vulnerable” by the International Union for Conservation of Nature and as “endangered” by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. 

Exhibit times sound like they may be reduced a bit to acclimate her to the zoo, but if you’re in the New York tri-state area, you can see the baby from the zoo’s Wild Asia Monorail.
