Newborn baby rhino at Denver Zoo

 WATCH: The Denver Zoo welcomed a baby one-horned rhino on Feb. 22.

The Denver Zoo just welcomed its first greater one-horned rhino calf.

After many failed attempts, 13-year-old rhino Tensing gave birth to a female calf on Feb. 22, the zoo announced on Instagram.

Unable to get pregnant naturally, Tensing underwent 11 unsuccessful artificial insemination procedures over four years before finally conceiving in November 2018.
