Cleveland Metroparks Zoo's new male baby eastern black rhinoceros has a name. The winning name, chosen by more than 9,000 votes in a week-long online poll, is Juba, which means "brave" in Swahili.
Juba was born on July 1, and his birth is truly a rare event as he is the first eastern black rhinoceros calf born in North America since January 2011.
Juba is the first for mother Kibibbi, who was born at Cleveland Metroparks Zoo in 2003. Jimma, Juba's father, is now on loan to the Brookfield Zoo in Chicago. Juba's birth marks the first time that three generations of rhinos have been represented at the Zoo - Kibibbi's mother Inge, Kibibbi and Juba.
Juba weighed about 80 pounds at birth, but is already up to 185 pounds and still growing! When fully grown, he will weigh about 3,000 pounds.
