A female rhino was born November 13. Weighing 45 kilograms, the calf belongs to 18-year-old Donsa,Advertisement It is the fifth white rhino to be born in captivity. There are only 5,000 white rhinos left in the world.

Zoo officials say the little one's very curious and loves peering into the mud pools.

It will take about seven months for it to settle in fully with the rest of the herd.

The little one is still unnamed, and visitors are welcome to suggest some suitable African names for the calf.
