A drink at the bars

The Guardian - - NATIONAL -

A four-month-old white rhi­noc­eros calf is fed by a keeper at Cotswold Wildlife Park and Gar­dens in Ox­ford­shire. Births of white rhi­nos – the most com­mon of the five rhino species – in cap­tiv­ity are rare and fe­males re­pro­duce only ev­ery two to three years. After a ges­ta­tion pe­riod of about 16 months, a sin­gle calf, weigh­ing up to about 65kg, is born.
