Near threatened baby white rhino runs around zoo enclosure at 10 days old

A white rhino born at a UK zoo is now zooming around her enclosure at just 10 days old.

The 66kg Southern African white rhino baby, a species categorised as “near threatened” by the International Union for Conservation of Nature, arrived on 13 January.

After a brief feeding scare, the newborn has bounced back and is now entertaining both keepers at Colchester Zoo and her mother by evading weigh-ins by whizzing around her enclosure.

The baby, who hasn’t yet been named, was born to mother Astrid after 16 long months of pregnancy.
