Baby rhino at Safari Park getting supplemental bottle

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - The newest rhino at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park is getting some nutritional help from her human caregivers.

Keepers are now giving five-week-old Shomili a bottle feeding as part of her daily routine. They say her mother Sundari isn't able to give the calf all the nutrition she needs.

Shomili is developing right on schedule, and has gained almost 120 pounds since she was born.

She will continue to get the bottles until she begins to eat solid foods.
