Newborn rhino calf
Southern White Rhinoceros
It’s a girl!

A new white rhinoceros baby named Xola was born to mother Zenzele on Feb. 11, 2024. Zenzele is an experienced mom, so we know Xola’s in good hoofs!

Rhino calves are born after a pregnancy of about 16 months. They weigh more than 100 pounds at birth and grow about 10 pounds every day! Their horns appear after about 6 weeks of age.

Rhino calves stay close to their mother for the first couple of months. Our new calf will begin meeting other members of the herd this spring.
