About 10 o’clock this morning rhino lady Minna gave birth to a baby. Everything went well and the mother and her baby are doing fine.

They need now peace and quiet so the baby can get up properly and start suckling. The milk bar is waiting.

Unfortunately the webcams didn’t work during the birthgiving but there will be a video later on! But you can already admire the sweet baby and her proud mother in some photos:

Welcome to the world, sweet baby rhino! On behalf of the readers of Knuti’s Weekly I wish you lots of health and a happy life. Congratulations to mama Minna and her keepers!

Here’s the video of the birth and the moments after

You can follow Minna and her baby here

  1. WOW – Our ‘Kleine Hexe’ is into shape again this Monday morning.
    Dear MERVI, you are really quicker than a lightening!
    I just saw that BRITTA-GUDRUN asked you in ‘Die Knuipe’ to please give her
    the link to the ZOO COPENHAGEN Webcan (I made a search and gave it her)
    and when I entered just after ‘KWM’: Wow – there is anything already in
    letters and pics.



  2. So sweet and touching are those precious little-ones of those huge animals!
    It’s a real beauty. Wonder whether it’s a girl or a boy.
    Especially the two last pics above are so sweet to see:
    this tenderness between the mighty mother and the tiny baby. Awwwww……..!

    INGE aus Copenhagen – A special ‘Congratulations!’ to you and – of course also
    and in the first degree to the rhino mother and her keepers and visitors and
    HEALTH, GOOD LUCK and a looong and pleasant lift to the baby!

  3. Liebe Mervi,
    Liebe Dumba,

    vielen Dank für den Link zur Webcam.
    Hier sieht man erst, wie klein das Tierchen noch ist.
    Das lange Warten hat sich gelohnt und alles ist gut gegangen,
    das ist die Hauptsache.

    Liebe Grüße

  4. Dear Mervi!
    Thank you for bringing us the first pics of the cute and precious little rhino and her/his mother.
    I am relieved that everything went well and mother and child are doing fine so far.
    I wish them all the best!
    Congratulation to the Copenhagen Zoo and the keepers!

    Liebe Dumba!
    Danke für den Link zur Webcam!


  5. Dear Dumba, Inge and Mervi
    What a fine sight in Copenhagen Zoo. Minna and her new baby.
    The keepers must be very relieved as well.
    it will not be long before the little one is charging around as a rhino should..

  6. Dear Mervi, thanks for showing.
    Dear Dumba, thanks for greetings.
    Ralph, yes, the baby is a sweet little boy.

    Hugs from Copenhagen

  7. Thank you very much dear Mervi.
    Best wishes to Minna and her baby.

  8. Ich wünsche dem kleinen Bub alles Gute im Leben! 🙂

  9. Thank you, dear MERVI, for having added the video of the birth.
    Such a birth is again and again a miracle – and even more that
    this wonderful creature comes out of his mother with all necessary
    functions. It’s complete from the first moment and sooooo beautiful!

  10. Der Mervi!

    So sweet, thank You for the lovely Pictures!

    Greetings drin Innsbruck, Erika

  11. Liebe Mervi,

    ist das niedlich. Kleine Nashörnchen sind immer etwas ganz Besonderes.
    Wie winzig das Kleine ist, sieht man richtig, wenn Mama daneben steht.
    Das sind ganz tolle Fotos.

    Das Video von der Geburt ist echt klasse. Selten hat man so eine gue Kameraführung bei einer Nashorngeburt gesehen.
    Ich wünsche Mama und Kind alles Gute. Ich werde ab und zu mal via Webcam in die Kinderstube sehen.

    Vielen Dank für diese fantastischen Bilder und Videos.

    Liebe Grüße

  12. I visited the mother and child to-day. Charming.
    Hugs Inge

  13. Liebe Mervi,
    immer wieder ein Wunder so eine Geburt und ich wünsche Mutter und Kind alles Gute!
    Danke Dir für´s Zeigen.
    Liebe Grüße Moni K
