  • Description

    THE FIRST RHINOCEROS TO BE BORN AT LONDON ZOO MADE ITS FIRST APPEARANCE FOR THE FILM CAMERAS TODAY.

    IT WAS A COLD WELCOME FOR THE NEW BABY. WEIGHING IN AT 30LBS IT MADE ITS FIRST APPEARANCE AS A BLIZZARD SWEPT ACROSS LONDON. SNOW TUMBLED DOWN THICKLY AND THE TEMPERATURE FELL AS LUANA -- THAT'S ITS NAME -- TURNED A WARY EYE ON THE CAMERAMEN WHO HAD ARRIVED TO GIVE IT THE CELEBRITY TREATMENT. THE NEWCOMER IS ONE DAY OLD.

    FULLY GROWN THE NEW RHINOCEROS WILL WEIGH WELL OVER A TON (2.24 THOUSANDS POUNDS), BUT EVEN AT THAT WEIGHT THE RIGOURS OF THE ENGLISH WINTER MAY STILL PRESENT A PROBLEM.

    KEEPING A WATCH ON THE WHOLE PROCEEDING WAS THE BABY'S MOTHER, JUNE. FATHER PAUL WAS RATHER DISDAINFUL ABOUT THE WHOLE HULLABALOO. HE DID NOT BOTHER TO SHOW UP.
