The Australian Zoo has an exhibit of the soon to be extinct Black Rhinos. But a surprising event happened in April that the zookeepers were blown away by.

“A female Southern black rhino calf was born on April 28 at the Taronga Western Plains Zoo in Dubbo, Australia, stated a zoo keeper,” stated mnn.com. The baby rhino still doesn’t have a name yet, but the zoo keepers are awaiting a sign that inspires the name, according to yahoo.com.

The calf weighed between 55-65 pounds at birth and has been closely following her mother, who is very protective of her first baby, according to mnn.com.

 About 100,000 Black Rhinos existed in 1960. Between 1970 and 1992, 96 percent of Africa’s remaining Black Rhinos were killed by poaching, so when any Black Rhino baby is born, it’s a big celebration, stated mnn.com

    I think it’s cool and sweet that the rhino had a baby and the mom and baby stay together!

    Great Article! After reading your article, I would like to know more about Black Rhinos and if the population of Black Rhinos had increased between 1992-2017.
