Emi is a Sumatran rhino, one of the most endangered mammals on the planet. Having been orphaned on Sumatra, she was brought to the Cincinnati Zoo, where zookeepers hoped she might have a baby. But Emi and Ipuh, the male Sumatran rhino at the zoo, couldn't seem to conceive, and no one at the zoo could figure out why. Then one of the scientists made a surprising discovery. Includes a rhino field guide, glossary, and index. Full-color photographs.
