The first baby rhino to survive after being born from artificial insemination is healthy and well at the Montgomery Zoo. Though his birthday is June 5, the young calf was first introduced to the world on Saturday. The mother named Jeta was inseminated in February, the same month that a kindergartner in Alabama was kidnapped from a school bus and held hostage. In honor of the boy, the zoo named the calf Ethan.
