Black rhino calf Moyo / Saint Louis Zoo


Tough guy Moyo doesn’t have his horns yet, but that doesn’t stop him practicing his charge. The 2-week-old black rhinoceros calf is very active and zookeepers provide him with a variety of toys and enrichment throughout the day. Play is important for baby animals — it’s how they learn the skills they will need as adults.

A male black rhinoceros calf was born at the Saint Louis Zoo on 17 May 2017. The little male is nursing well and being cared for by his mother, according to the Zoo’s rhino care team. The pair is bonding in their barn behind the scenes in River’s Edge. A date has not yet been set for their public debut — via Youtube
