    I thought it a bit odd as well. They haven't had nearly as much sucess as some of the american zoos. How does that make them one of the best rhino breeding zoos in the world? I suppose it is maybe because they found our that males and Females living together permenatly wouldn't mate. Wonder whether it applies to black rhinos..........
