Czech Zoo Welcomes Baby Indian Rhinoceros

A zoo in the Czech Republic has welcomed a baby rhinoceros. 

The Indian rhino was born Feb. 5 at Zoo Plzen, 60 miles west of Prague. She weighed around 104 pounds at birth and is now up to 154 pounds. The zoo hasn't decided what to name her.

Her mother, Manjula, was pregnant for 485 days, but zoo officials said the birth itself was quick and uneventful. She's now one of 74 Indian rhinos in zoos across Europe.
