The white rhino calf is not yet named, but the Zoo has launched a naming contest on its Facebook page for the online community to participate. A selection of African names selected by the Zoo’s animal care team -- starting with the letter K in honor of mother Kidogo -- are below (in alphabetical order).
· Kafi – “quiet”
· Kande - “first born daughter”
· Kato – “second born”
· Kwaku – “born on Wednesday”
The female calf will receive her name just in time for the holidays with the most votes through Friday, Dec. 23.
