There's a new calf in town!

Oct 05, 2016

Zoo guests will soon see a new face charging around the Zoo’s Southern white rhinoceros habitat! Mom “Kidogo” gave birth to a female calf on Sept. 12, marking the fifth successful southern white rhino birth Zoo’s history. Even though she is a new Zoo baby, she is anything but small. The calf’s weight is estimated somewhere between 80-100 pounds! "Kidogo" will spend some important bonding time with her new calf, but pair will soon be in the Southern white rhino habitat for guests to see. For now, these cute photos and videos will have to do!
