Baby Rhino Makes Public Debut at Zoo Miami

On Friday, June 7, a new baby rhino made her public debut at Zoo Miami and was welcomed to the zoo with a big gender reveal party.

“This is certainly the most important birth of the year here at the zoo. Indian rhinos are a vulnerable species,” Zoo Miami spokesman Ron Magill told Local 10.

The baby girl rhino was born on April 23 to a mom that carried her for 15 months in a unique pregnancy. “It’s the first time ever in the world that a birth is the result of induced ovulation combined with artificial insemination, so this is huge because it says a lot about our potential,” said Magill.
