    Can someone confirm this video is recent, it shows a mother and calf at Lisbon zoo, perhaps cindelp?
    ISIS is showin 1.3 at the zoo but no births, this video is from Nov 21 2009.

    I was there last saturday and saw the 4 rhinos and no baby!

    In fact I've just uploaded photos of the four (divided by the two enclosure: south with two females; north with one male and one female, where the male was trying to mate).

    So, my guess is that video is quite old. Plus, I think that ISIS archives concerning LZ have been updated very recently.

    The Indian Rhinoceros studbook lists two Indian rhinos in Lisbon on 31 December 2008:-

    • male “Gangtok”
    • female “Teja”

    Obviously, though, this information is now a year out-of-date.

    Numa and Nova moved to Lisbon from Dvur Kralove in March 2009. They are mother and daughter although I don't know which way round.

    According to the studbook 'Numa' is the mother of 'Nova'.

    Unfortunately, as Kifaru Bwana has already stated, this studbook is not available on-line.

    However, when I visited Basle Zoo in September, I was pleased to find both the Indian Rhinoceros Studbook and the Pigmy Hippopotamus Studbook for sale in the zoo shop.

    I wish that more zoo shops sold copies of the studbooks that the zoo maintains.

    Well, what happened to male "Alok", who was born in 2006 at Lisbon Zoo? How old is "Gangtok", which zoo is he from?

    I have checked in the studbook to answer your questions:-

    “Alok” was born at Lisbon Zoo on 10th April 2006. Sadly he died on 27th June 2006.

    “Gangtok” was born at San Diego Wild Animal Park on 22nd December 1991 and arrived Lisbon on 25th October 1996.

    That is nice. I hope to make it this year to southern Germany and Switzerland for a zoo visit.

    On topic Lisboa rhinos: now the whites are in for success ... what is the score with the GOH rhinos? Cindel, anyone else ...???

    What is the reason behind the consistent failure of the original Lisboa pairing to produce viable offspring and when doing so losing these in a post natal fatality of sorts?

    Why also maintain mother Numa - non reproductive now - with her daughter (which might impair her from breeding)?
