Indian Rhinoceros Calf Is Born at Sosto Zoo

The beginning of this child Indian rhinoceros (Rhinoceros unicornis) is a big zoological success. It required critical experience to breed these solitary animals. They not often breed in human care.

Because the feminine rhino is simply fertile for a number of days, the caretakers monitored her constantly, whereas the veterinary crew examined hormone ranges weekly to seek out essentially the most optimum time for mating.

After a profitable rendezvous, the being pregnant of the rhinoceros cow was constantly examined by zoo veterinarians and the event of the calf was monitored with ultrasound examinations and blood sampling. Because the being pregnant progressed, the caretakers monitored the first-time mother by means of a digital camera system within the evenings. She gave beginning to her calf on November 4, 2022 at 19:56.

Nyíregyháza Zoo’s group is the one breeding herd of Indian rhinoceros in all of Hungary. The herd consists of three sexually mature animals, all delivered to Nyíregyháza throughout the framework of the European Endangered Species Breeding Program (EEP).

The oldest cow, 14-year-old Jázmin, gave beginning to her calf in 2018 (that offspring was the primary to be born in Hungary). Now 18-year-old sire Hans has a child by the opposite cow, 11-year-old Aruna.


The “little” 150kg animal has simply been named! Zookeepers have chosen the Asian identify Aman, which implies peace.
