The Cleveland Metroparks Zoo welcomed a new Eastern black rhinoceros on February 7. This video from cleveland.com shows the baby and her mother, Kibibbi.

The zoo is holding a public vote to select a name for the new rhino. To participate, guests can cast their vote with an online donation to Cleveland Metroparks Zoo through the Future for Wildlife Fund at FutureForWildlife.org/RhinoNaming for one of the following names:

  • Nya – meaning friend
  • Dalia – meaning flower
  • Lulu – meaning gem
Each of the names are unique to the Eastern black rhino’s native regions in Africa. The calf’s name will be selected based on the name that receives the highest donation total. The public can cast their votes through March 1, 2018.
