The Indian rhinoceros baby born in Ireland has been named!

Cork: Indian rhino cub born at Cork’s Fota Wildlife Park has been named Jai.

More than a thousand names were proposed for this ten-week-old Indian boy, but the authorities eventually decided to accept the name Jai, suggested by Cliodhna Kelleher of County Leitrim. The winner of the naming competition was awarded a year-long conservation pass to Fota Wildlife Park.

Jai is the first rhino born in Ireland. This Indian is the world’s sixth born in a zoological institution this year.

There are four Indian rhinos in the park, namely Maya, Jamil, Jai, and Shusto. After 16 months of waiting for Maya and Jamil, Jai was born. Jake, who weighed 60 kg when he was born, now weighs more than 165 kg. A healthy rhino gains one to two kilogrammes per day.

Lead ranger Aidan Rafferty said the jai, who had been dependent on his mother for so long, had started picking some grass and hay. Smart Jai is always mischievous. He goes outside with his mother every afternoon to play. During that time, visitors will have the chance to meet him.

The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) has classified this species of rhinoceros as endangered. There are approximately 3300 rhinoceroses in the world’s forests.
