A baby rhino named Ethan was born June 5 at a zoo in Montgomery, Alabama.  He's the world's first rhino born via artificial insemination.

Ethan already weighs about 90 pounds.

There are fewer than 3,000 Indian rhinos remaining in the wild. Zoologists hope breeding programs will help keep the species going.
