Three-Week-Old Indian Rhinoceros Calf Now On Exhibit at Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo Three weeks old today, an endangered Indian rhinoceros calf (also known as the greater onehorned rhinoceros) is now on exhibit with his mother “Jamie” at Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo for limited hours daily. His birth May 9 was the third for the species at the Zoo in five years, and a significant conservation milestone with fewer than 60 animals in the managed population. The new offspring has been given the Indian name “Jiyu,” (pronounced JAI-you) meaning compassionate friend, by the Zoo’s Asian animal care team. His keepers report he is bold and outgoing, with a big personality for a little rhino.

designed to support the conservation of select wildlife species at risk of extinction. Counting the new male calf, there are just 54 Indian rhinos in AZA-accredited institutions, with an estimated wild population of no more than 2,850. Photo by Dave Parkinson, Zoo docent
