Rapti, the mother-to-be rhinoceros, is healthy and happy - and thus ready for the imminent birth.
Somewhat more alert than before her pregnancy, Rapti now tends to prick up her ears whenever she detects a new sound or smell. The great moment is fast approaching: Hellabrunn’s female rhino is expected to give birth in the next 14 days.
The Munich Zoo Hellabrunn was founded in 1911 as the first Geo-zoo worldwide. The animals live according to their geographic distribution in complex communities.
Hellabrunn’s Species Conservation Center is a unique forum where zoo visitors can access an amazing amount of information about the zoo’s many projects.
