Video: Cute animal - Baby white rhino born at zoo


A safari park has delivered a newborn rhino from a species which is being hunted into decline in the wild. Bruce, the southern white rhino, is the fourth calf born to mother Dorothy, known to her keepers as Dot, at Blair Drummond Safari Park, near Stirling. While southern white rhinos are not currently endangered, the species is vulnerable to poachers due to a high demand for rhino horn in Asian markets. Chris Lucas, team leader for large mammals, welcomed Bruce into the world at 1.10am on Sunday.
