Baby rhino the latest sensation at the Toronto Zoo
The Toronto Zoo has a brand new baby animal to fawn over - and it's not a panda. Two days ago Ashakiran, the zoo's 11-year-old female Indian rhino, welcomed a baby boy into the world after a 16-month pregnancy - the father is Vishnu, another Indian rhino at the zoo.
If the sight of baby animals melts your heart, you may want to schedule a trip to the zoo in the next few months - it currently has a pair of lion cubs, two baby pandas, a pint-sized polar bear and now this calf.
Note that some of these critters, including the zoo's newest addition, are not yet visible to the public (but their antics are heavily documented on YouTube).
