Baby White Rhino Born

The Virginia Zoo has welcomed its newest family member, a baby southern white rhino. She is now the fifth member of the zoo’s herd.

The baby, a female, was born in the early morning of Nov. 9. According to the zoo, a neonatal exam done about two days after she was born confirmed she was about 100 pounds.

Glad to see this, but is the father a White Rhino? Skin looks dark to me.

Sometimes the young of white/pale skinned or haired creatures are born quite dark. I believe this is the case with Lipizzaner horses.
