We have BIG NEWS for World Rhino Day. Join us in welcoming our newest Team Rhino recruit — a new Sumatran rhino calf!

Pictured here is Ratu’s fetus is at 117 days old. In this stage of development, the fetus is much larger than an embryo. In the lower right corner of the image, you can clearly see the calf’s head. This is a profile view, and the circular dark spot is the fetus’ eye. To the left of the eye, you can see its nose and mouth. The new calf will be the second rhino born at the Sumatran Rhino Sanctuary in Indonesia’s Way Kambas National Park. Courtesy of Yayasan Badak Indonesia.
