UAE zoo reports birth of first Indian rhino in Middle East

A 58–kilogramme male rhinoceros was born at a non–commercial zoo in the UAE, believed to be the first Indian rhino birth in the Middle East region.

The rhinoceros was born on October 13 at the Al Bustan Zoological Centre in Sharjah.

His mother, Asha, carried him for 470 days and gave birth to the baby rhino unassisted, after being in labour for three hours, zoo authorities said.PTI
