The calf appears healthy and is nursing well from its mother. Just moments after birth, the 110-pound (50kg) calf took its first steps. Zoo guests can peek into the den for a glimpse of the calf.
One hundred years ago, there were half a million Black and White Rhinos in the wild. Today, that figure stands at less than 30,000. This calf will play an important role in the future of the species.
