    Default Keepers bottle-feed rhinoceros calf in German zoo


    The Allwetter Zoo in Muenster, Germany, welcomed a baby rhinoceros Sunday. Because the calf's mother showed signs of nervousness and aggression during the birth, zoo staff decided to separate the two and now plan to raise the calf themselves. A team of keepers will care for the hefty infant (only a day after its birth, it already weighs more than 100 pounds) around the clock.
    Zoo staffers will have their work cut out for them keeping up with the calf's appetite; young rhinos normally drink 12 gallons of milk each day and gain an average of 100 pounds a month! More photos of the calf after the jump.

    I don't think it could possibly be any cuter.

    We did the story yesterday (It's right around the corner) and the women were stabbing each other to get the assignment. I lost.
