A second rhinoceros was recently born at the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo, park officials announced today. This time, an eastern black rhino calf was born to 25-year-old Inge, a mama of four.

Earlier this year, baby Lulu joined the Metroparks Zoo rhino family, and now seven rhinos have been born at the park in total.

Pregnant for nearly 16 months, Inge is doing well and is being given time to connect with her child out of view of visitors.

"We're very excited to welcome our second eastern black rhino calf born here at Cleveland Metroparks Zoo this year," Cleveland Metroparks Zoo Executive Director Christopher Kuhar said in a satatement. "We hope these significant births inspire guests to learn more about this critically endangered species and how they can help protect eastern black rhinos in the wild."
