On Sunday, May 25th, a Black Rhinoceros was born at Zoo Miami. This little girl weighed  122 pounds. Black Rhinos are highly endangered as they continue to be poached at alarming rates in Eastern and Southern Africa.There were once over 100,000 running wild in Africa— within the past century, those numbers are down to an estimated 5,000. They are killed for their horns which are prized in some eastern cultures for medicinal purposes and as status symbols. Sad.

Here she is with mom. Check out all the babies at zooborns.
