New Baby Rhino on Display at Buffalo Zoo

BUFFALO, NY- One month after she was first born, Monica, the baby rhino is now on display at the Buffalo Zoo.

And while she's just an infant, Monica is already causing some trouble for the zookeepers.

'In the barn she can fit outside the bars so she loves to come and steal buckets and run away with them, take hoses and run away with them," Joe Hauser, lead rhino keeper said.

"They love playing at bath time. They get a bath every morning she just rolls around, she horses around, she was just chasing after the vet yesterday so she had a good time with that."

Zookeepers don't mind being chased by Monica right now because she only weighs 190 pounds. That's sure to change when Monica reaches her full weight, about 4,000 pounds.
