An endangered black rhino gave birth to a calf in MI zoo on Christmas eve. "Doppsee seems to be doing well and zoo staff are keeping a close eye on her". The new child's father, Phineus, got here to the MI zoo from Texas in 2017.

"This is an important moment for the Potter Park zoo, the result of years of planning and hard work".

An incredibly rare black rhino has been born on Christmas Eve at a U.S. zoo, after years of planning and preparation. The Facebook page of the zoo, broadcast feed of the 12-year-old Doppsee delivering the black endangered baby rhino live. Little Rhino looks healthy and we are seeing frequent feeding soon after birth, which is very encouraging,"said veterinarian of the zoo Potter Park Dr. Ronan Eustace". "We are dedicated to conserving rhinos and we couldn't be more excited about this successful birth of black rhinos", Wagner said.

Potter Park reported that the calf was standing up an hour-and-a-half after he was born, with animal care and veterinary staff saying that he appears to be nursing well. SSP supports a genetically healthy population of black rhinos in these zoos.

Cummins had been bought by eventual champions Mumbai Indians last season but was ruled out due to injury. Australian cricketers dominated the IPL 2020 auction in Kolkata without a second thought.

The zoo says the species is being "pushed to the brink of extinction by illegal poaching and loss of habitat". The offspring and mother are well and are now joining, according to the zoo. Phineus and Doppsee combined to reproduce together through the Eastern Black Rhino Species Survival Plan.

The exciting moment took place at 5:40am on 24th December, with subsequent footage captured and shared on the zoo's social media channel, as a Christmas treat for its followers.

There are just over 50 black rhinos in the care of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums accredited zoos. An average of less than two black baby rhinos are born under the supervision of people every year, making each baby is vital to this endangered population.
