“Greater one-horned rhinos are a vulnerable species and every new calf is ever so special. This is a momentous new arrival.

“Asha’s precious new arrival, which is already developing into quite a bolshie little character, will hopefully go some way to keeping rhinos and the surrounding issues in the spotlight.”

The calf was born on May 3, and is the second greater one-horned rhino to be born at the zoo.
