The latest addition to Dublin Zoo is this female Southern White Rhinoceros, shown here running in an enclosure after being unveiled to the public. The baby white rhino, one of the world's most endangered animals, was the result of years of plotting by keepers at Dublin Zoo. Its mother, Ashanti, is one of the six white rhinos at the zoo.
Late last year, zookeepers took unusual steps to determine her pregnancy.
They put non-toxic glitter into the feed of Ashanti and one of the other females, Zanta. One got silver glitter, the other blue.
That allowed keepers to identify Ashanti's dung and test it for increased hormone levels
White rhinos were once hunted to near extinction and the animal is listed as a critically endangered species.
