Fota Wildlife Park announced a first in its 39-year history and a first for Ireland; a baby Indian rhino.
The new addition to the park was born on the 19th of September 2022, after a gestation period of 16 months, to mother, Maya and father, Jamil.
The Indian Rhino is one of just six born into captivity this year.
After appealing to the public for name suggestions, the only baby Indian Rhino in Ireland has been named.
It's the last day to suggest a name for the baby rhino!
Be sure to get your name in today. One of the selected suggestions will win a Conservation Annual Pass to the Park - https://t.co/dbUj9sADqr pic.twitter.com/I6V1jAw90C
