(Source) An eastern black rhinoceros, a critically endangered species, has been born at Lincoln Park Zoo. The 60-pound male calf was born to Kapuki, an 8-year-old first-time mother, on Monday. The father is Maku, a 27-year-old rhino was has four other offspring. “Mother and baby are both doing wonderfully,” said Curator of Mammals Mark Kamhout in a statement from the zoo. “The calf divides his time between nursing, following mom around and napping. And that is exactly what a baby rhino should be doing.”
The calf, who has not yet been named, is the first born at Lincoln Park Zoo since 1989, the zoo said. He won’t make his first public appearance at the zoo for several weeks; both he and his mom will be out of the public eye until then. The zoo presently has three adult eastern black rhinos in residence – two males (Maku and Ricko) and one female (Kapuki).
Motherfucking Baby Rhino, that’s how! We’re back. Look at this little fucker. So god damn cute. Like a mini person, if that person was a rhino (my baby rhino simile’s aren’t exactly in mid-season form, wasn’t prepared for this). Pep officially back in my step. Dead baby dolphin who? Broke ass sea otter what? We’ve got ourselves a baby rhino. Underwear slushies for everyone.
So help me god if this rhino dies….
