Greater one-horned rhino born at tulsa zoo

Earlier this week, the Tulsa Zoo in Oklahoma announced the birth of its very own Southern white rhino. According to the International Rhino Foundation, this species is endangered and the population in the wild is estimated to be fewer than 20,000. The species has been making a comeback over the last century, with a few stragglers making it to the big time.

The first baby rhino to call Tulsa home arrived on November 27, weighing a mere 127 pounds. His name is Hodari and he was the fourth calf to be born to mom Sally. He will remain at the zoo in the Mary K. Chapman Rhino Reserve barn. He’s certainly the star of the show, but will be kept under close scrutiny by the zoo’s veterinary team.

Earlier this weekend, Tulsa Zoo welcomed its first white rhino calf, born to mother Sally. The male calf weighs 127 pounds and will be known as Hodari.

The southern white rhino is a threatened species due to poaching. Its population is estimated to be between 18,000 and 20,000 in Africa. It is a mega-herbivore, grazing on grasses and other vegetation. They also provide habitat for other species such as elephants and antelope. They are classified as Near Threatened on the Red List of Threatened Species.

The zoo will continue to monitor both mother and calf to make sure they are healthy. The calf will be introduced to other rhinos in the next few weeks.

The calf is expected to be around 4,000 to 5,000 pounds when it is fully grown. It will nurse for up to 12 months.

The Species Survival Plan, which is the Association of Zoos and Aquariums’ conservation program for rhinos, works to ensure a sustainable population of rhinos in AZA care. It also helps to reduce the demand for rhinoceros horns.

The zoo’s first male rhino calf was born on Sunday, November 27, weighing 127 pounds. The calf was born to mom Sally. Hodari is the fourth calf born from mom Sally.

Earlier this week Cotswold Wildlife Park & Gardens announced the birth of a baby White Rhino. The first ever White Rhino birth in the UK, and possibly the first in the world, was born at the Park.

A total of nineteen White Rhinos have been born in European zoological collections in the past 12 months. However, a birth in captivity is still very rare.

A successful breeding programme is vital for the conservation of Near Threatened species. At Cotswold Wildlife Park & Garden’s, a breeding pair consisting of Tull and Penelope have had their first litter. Their first calf, a female, was born last year.

The park is working closely with Tusk Trust, a UK conservation charity which helps protect threatened species in Africa. Prince William, the Prince of Wales, is a Royal Patron of Tusk. Reggie Heyworth, the Park’s Managing Director, is a Tusk Trust Ambassador. He is also a marathon runner in aid of the charity.
