Original text on this topic:
A young female Black rhinoceros Diceros bicornis at Pretoria Zoo regularly came into oestrus in a cycle of about four weeks. The male was interested in her during oestrus and attempted to mate with her. However, copulation was never achieved and it was therefore decided to try and inseminate the female artificially.
