The 128-pound bundle of joy was born Tuesday to Lulu, an endangered southern white rhino, after five years of research into artificial insemination.
The baby rhino is being fed by zoo workers until its mother is ready
The female baby rhino was born late on Tuesday, Jan 23 2007 and weighed some 128lbs (58kg) after a pregnancy lasting 16 months and 15 days.
Vets decided to inseminate the 26-year-old mother, Lulu, in 2005, when she failed to conceive naturally.
The baby rhino, which has yet to be named, was described as "full of life" by zoo officials.
