Eastern black rhinos, native to Eastern and Central Africa, have two large horns made of keratin that they use for defense, intimidation, and feeding. An adult can weigh anywhere between 1,760 and 3,080 pounds, and newborns (calves) weigh between 73 – 121 pounds. Kendi is only the fifth eastern black rhino born in the last two years in North America and the first to be born at the Cincinnati Zoo since 1999. There are fewer than 60 of his species in the entire North American Zoo population and fewer than 5,000 black rhinos remain in the world.
Start your morning with these critically endangered creatures while a head keeper provides fascinating stories of their personal experiences and fun facts about them. After breakfast, we will invite you to the fence line as the rhino care team coaxes them to the lower level of their habitat for an up close and personal view.
