The Saint Louis Zoo released a video of its newest black rhino, Moyo.

Moyo, which means “heart” in Swahili, was born May 17. The zoo has not announced when the new rhino, born to Katie Rain and Ajabu, will make his public debut.

According to worldwildlife.org, European hunters are responsible the declining populations of black rhino as they’d 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.
