Video: Baby rhino on display at Alabama zoo

June 25, 2013 3:43:11 AM PDT
The first baby rhinoceros to be born through artificial insemination is now on display at the zoo in Montgomery, Alabama.

And that's not the only thing special about him.

Ethan, born earlier this month, is named after the Alabama boy rescued after being held hostage in a bunker in February.

And even though he's less than a month old, Ethan the rhino already weighs about 90 pounds.

His mom, 12-year-old Jeta, was inseminated back in February of 2012.

There are less than 3,000 Indian rhinos remaining in the wild. Zoologists hope successful breeding will help sustain the population.
