ANOTHER rhino has joined the crash at Cotswold Wildlife Park as the site welcomes only the third female calf born in it's history.

Stella the rhino calf is the newest addition to the park and gardens in West Oxfordshire after a sixteen-month pregnancy.

Oxford Mail:

Born to Ruby and Monty, the baby was welcomed into the family-run Burford collection with keepers catching the touching moment she was born on camera.

Head keeper Mark Godwin caught the birth, which lasted just fifteen minutes, on film and also managed to catch Stella tentatively taking her first steps.

Cotswold Wildlife Park curator Jamie Craig, said: “We have had tremendous success with our current Rhino herd.

"Stella is the sixth youngster from Nancy and Ruby and our bull, Monty, has proved to be an excellent dad.

Oxford Mail:

"He is the perfect combination of a dominant bull and caring patriarch.

"It is particularly satisfying that Ruby has produced a female calf – these are vital for the development of the breeding programme and Stella will eventually move on to hopefully become a successful mother herself."
