Lulu's baby now weighs more than 200kg

The China View website recently reported that Lulu the White Rhino's baby, the first to be conceived and carried-to-term by artificial insemination, has really flourished and Layla now exceeds 200kg!
Layla, who weight [sic] 58 kilograms when she was born January 23 at Budapest Zoo, had to be bottle-fed since her mother Lulu was not willing to nurse her.

The calf reached 100 kilograms on March 10 and has doubled her weight in the two months since then, zoo officials said.
