Confused Zoo Officials Awkwardly Celebrate After Endangered Panda Gives Birth To Healthy Northern White Rhino


Sumatran rhinos give birth to one calf at a time, every 3-4 years. Calves are born from October to May, which corresponds with the region's rainy season. Calves gain independence at 16-17 months and may join other juveniles before taking up a solitary lifestyle. Their life span is thought to be similar to other rhinos at around 35-40 years.

Rapti, a rhino at Hellabrunn Zoo, went through a 492-day-long gestation period before giving birth to her son Puri on August 31, 2015.


These easily recognizable creatures are native to middle and southern Africa. They are some of the largest land-dwelling mammals in the world, reaching weights of up to 6,000 pounds.
