Baby rhino to make public debut at werribee zoo
The female, known as Rhinosnake, was born as a male in January after undergoing surgery to have a third breast removed.
바카라사이트When it was born, her mother was pregnant again and didn’t want Rhinosnake to be a girl, Ms Brabey said.
She said rhinos were kept in the home in Wertumbine when the male became pregnant 우리카지노with two more female children.
Mr Brabey said the birth and her life, which include being a zoo visitor and making friends, were a miracle.
«She is a miracle baby,» he said.
«She has had the worst of everything, she is suffering now. She can’t walk, her teeth are falling out and she’s suffering really badly because she is getting cancer from the birth.»
Sydney Zoo chief executive Mike Wigley welcomed Rhinosnake’s arrival but hoped Rhinosnake would become a normal baby elephant.
«The Rhinosnake’s arrival is a very significant day for Sydney Zoo because the mother of Rhinosnake has taken the brave decision to undergo a surgical procedure to remove her foetus and bring a baby elephant to live with her,» Mr Wigley said.
«We will be working with Australian governme바카라nt department of health and animal welfare (DAWH) and the Australian Rhino Foundation to support Rhinosnake’s journey.
«Rhinosnake is a wonderful addition to the Sydney Zoo family, and we thank her all for her commitment to this magnificent family and for supporting us along our journey with Rhinosnake.»
Mr Wigley said the newborn would become a proud member of the rhino family and a member of the Sydney Zoo family.
