Polish Zoo welcomes endangered Indian rhinoceros baby

WARSAW, Poland (AP) — An endangered Indian rhinoceros was born recently in Poland’s Wroclaw Zoo, a hopeful development in efforts to preserve the rare animals.

Born on January 6, the female baby is the first Indian rhinoceros birth in the zoo’s 155-year history, the zoo said. Its parents are seven-year-old Maruska and an 11-year-old male, Manas. “Maruska, a first-time mom, behaves wonderfully,” Zoo President Radoslaw Ratajszczak was quoted as saying.
