Newborn Baby Rhino at The Buffalo Zoo
OH BABY! We are excited to share that after 488 days of pregnancy, Tashi our greater one-horned rhino gave birth to a 123.5 pound male calf. The Zoo animal care team report mom and baby are bonding and doing well. This birth is very special and important for the future of the species — this is only the third successful birth of a greater one-horned rhino via artificial insemination. Tashi’s third calf, Monica was the first and the second was born recently at Zoo Miami. This birth is Tashi’s fourth calf!
Tashi and baby calf will remain behind-the-scenes as our animal care and veterinary teams continue to monitor their progress. Follow along on our social media channels for updates and announcements including a name reveal and when mom and baby will make their public debut!
