Rare black rhino born in Iowa

DES MOINES, Iowa (WHO) — The Blank Park Zoo is celebrating the birth of a rare and endangered black rhino. The 80-pound female calf was born on October 11th, to six-year-old mom Ayana. It's the first black rhino born at the zoo. Officials say the calf is doing well and was standing and walking within an hour of its birth and attempting to feed after two hours. Ayana and her daughter won't be on display in order to give the pair a chance to bond but officials with the zoo say they plan to do special livestream events to allow the public to get a look at the calf.
