Kutu was captive born at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park in 1996. He was transferred to the San Antonio Zoo in 2002. He was added to our observation list, along with Gertrude, in 2011 after the deaths of Herbie and Sababu.
Kutu is currently the only rhinoceros in residence at the San Antonio Zoo; however, we suspect that a new white rhinoceros will be brought in as a mate, soon, due to remodeling of the empty rhinoceros exhibits. The zoo has knocked down the walls between two of the old exhibits, opening up a much larger space for a new exhibit. These are great steps towards a more progressive future, and we hope to see more of this type of remodeling as the zoo goes forward.
Antiquated Night Quarters
Kutu has always appeared to be a very robust, healthy male, rhino. He is on the list only due to our observations with the other rhinos.
