After a 15-month pregnancy, Kibibbi, a 14-year-old Eastern black rhino, gave birth to a calf on February 7, 2018! Mom and baby are doing well and have been under constant care by the Zoo's animal care team. For all the behind-the-scenes updates, stay tuned here and Cleveland Metroparks Zoo's social media channels.
IT’S A GIRL! The recently welcomed calf was observed successfully nursing from mom on the first day and has spent much of her time near mom, which is an indicator of a strong bond.
Tens of thousands of Black Rhinos once traversed much of Africa. Today, less than 5,000 remain.
