Watch Cleveland Metroparks Zoo’s Eastern black rhinoceros calf, Dalia, explore the outdoor rhino habitat for the very first time! Guests can now visit Dalia outside during regular zoo hours. Viewing is best during the mornings as she acclimates to her new space.
Her mom, Kibibbi, gave birth to the calf on July 9. The birth is an important one for the species as Eastern black rhinos are critically endangered with less than 750 remaining in the wild due to poaching that supplies the illegal international rhino horn trade, as well as habitat loss.
Dalia’s name, which means “gentle,” was selected through an in-person and online voting program run by the zoo.
