Original text on this topic:
Gestation length recorded in the wild is, for obvious reasons, quite variable. The Natal Parks report a gestation period of 450 days with mean intercalving periods of 44 and 30 months in Hluhluwe and Umfolozi Parks, respectively. In Zurich Zoological Gardens, where 6 births have taken place in recent years, gestation periods of 457 to 470 days were recorded.
