World first: birth of rhinoceros on webcam

‘World first’ rhino birth on web

The birth of a rhino is to be captured on a BBC-run webcam in what zookeepers believe will be a world first.

Sita, a one-tonne black rhino, is due to give birth this month at Paignton Zoo, in Devon, where cameras are being trained on her paddock 24 hours a day.

The zoo said there was no existing footage of a black rhino being born in a zoo anywhere in the world.

The birth, the zoo’s first rhino calf, is part of its on-going endangered species programme.

The baby rhino was born 5 March; update here.
