A very cute addition to rhino conservation efforts has just arrived! 🦏 | Repost @stlzoo | We are proud to announce the birth of a male black rhinoceros calf on Wednesday, May 17. Moyo (pronounced MOY-oh), which means “heart” in Swahili, is the second offspring for mother Kati Rain (pronounced Katie Rain) and father Ajabu (pronounced ah-JAH-boo). The little male is nursing well and being cared for by his mother, according to the Zoo’s rhino care team. The pair is bonding in their barn behind the scenes in River’s Edge. A date has not yet been set for their public debut.
