Happy Hump Day!

Illustration for article titled Happy Hump Day!

Meet Terkel! He was born on June 15 at the Tel Aviv Zoological Center after his mom, Tanda, was pregnant for a year and a half. More info and pix at Zooborns.

Bonus: Incredibly graphic but pretty amazing video of Terkel the baby rhino being born! You can see him blinking behind the veil of the amniotic sac. Imagine being in labor with something that has a horn and hooves. It's the miracle of life!

It's incredible that many four-legged creatures attempt to and succeed to stand or walk so shortly after birth!

Also, this reminded me of Ace Ventura being birthed out of a rhino.

I'm not proud of it.
