The Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago announced the arrival of an eastern black rhino calf on May 19.
Kapuki, the mother of the calf, has been pregnant for over a year.
According to National Geographic, black rhinos could grow to be anywhere between 1,760 to 3,080 pounds and four-and-a-half to six feet fall at the shoulder.
Black rhinos are native to most of sub-Saharan Africa, but in today's world the species is critically endangered due to illegal poaching.
This new addition to the Lincoln Park Zoo is one step towards keeping this species alive.
