Nice holiday present

Recommended Posts

Finally, some newborn rhinos from a female and male hatched out and reared to maturity in captivity (from old report in archives).

??? Are you saying these are from yours, or a report from someone? More details available? Photos??? :D

Good question, it's relatively secondary. The female and male are from a guy in 04-05 who lives two cities away from me (25min. drive) who bought them as newborns from mid June 2002 (first births outside Australia reported). From looking back at the archived dates it is interesting to note that according to the entomologists who study them, M.rhinoceros reportedly give birth once a year around November in nature, but the original female gave birth in mid June and her daughter July 4th. The original female was exported in 2000.
