A southern white rhino calf has been born at Dublin Zoo.

The male calf was born to proud mother Nyala and father Chaka on Sunday 12th of November, weighing roughly 50kgs.

The newest member of the herd joins Sam, Reni, Ashanti, Zuko and his parents in the African Plains and is said to be settling in well.

Helen Clarke-Bennet, team leader of the African Plains said: “We are absolutely thrilled to welcome another southern white rhinoceros calf to Dublin Zoo.

"The newest addition to the herd is Nyala’s first calf, which is very special and she has taken to motherhood extremely well.

"The calf is healthy, strong, feeding well and full of life already!”
