VTV.vn - Vinpearl Safari Phú Quốc has just witnessed the births of two white rhinoceroses. Newborn rhinos have not been seen in Vietnam in the last ten years.

These two newborn rhinos are white rhinos mainly living in the northeast and south of Africa. This is also one of the five species of rhino still existing in nature.

This kind of rhino has brown or grey skin, two horns, and a hump behind its neck. According to the Southeast Asian Zoos and Aquariums Association, rhinos' reproduction faces difficulties because pregnancies last up to 16 to 18 months and have many risks.

Rhinos also need intensive care and a certain living environment to be able to reproduce, so not many rhinos are born in zoos.
