After an 18 month pregnancy, Tendra the rhinoceros gave birth to a healthy calf at the Ramat-Gan Safari on Friday, June 15.

This was the second successful birth for 20-year-old Tendra. Congratulatory messages have been streaming in from zoos all over the world.

White Rhinos are notoriously difficult to breed in captivity and every successful birth is vital for the prservation of this species.

Tendra’s first calf, Timor, is the only other white rhino born in the Ramat-Gan Safari in the past 20 years. Judging by past experience, Tendra is expected to be a good mother to the new baby rhino.

It has not yet been determined if the newborn is a boy or a girl rhino.
