Endangered eastern black rhino born at Atlanta zoo
Reuters: An eastern black rhinoceros was born at Atlanta’s zoo for the first time in its history on Saturday night. Zoo Atlanta officials say the calf appears healthy and is bonding with its mother. There is no name yet, and the gender has not been determined.
The eastern black rhino has suffered near-catastrophic population decreases in recent decades, largely attributed to poaching. The horns, skin and other body parts of the rhino are believed by some to have medicinal value.
