News

CINCINNATI, Ohio (CBS News) – A healthy baby eastern black rhinoceros was born at Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden on Friday .

Calf and mom are bonding in the barn while their keepers are sending videos of the two.

The fact that mom Seyia and dad Faru have produced two calves is significant as the eastern black rhinos are considered a critically endangered species, the Zoo told Reuters.

The gestation period is 16 months, making population growth a slow process.
