In a post on their Facebook page, the St. Louis Zoo announced that a new black rhino baby will soon arrive.

This would be the second offspring for mother Kati Rain and father Ajabu.

According to worldwildlife.org, European hunters are responsible for the early decline of black rhino populations as they would kill as many as six rhinos per day for food and amusement. The group lists the black rhino has critically endangered with fewer than 5,000 alive.
