Czech Republic zoo names baby rhino for kyiv

A zoo in the Czech Republic has welcomed an eastern black rhino calf named after the Ukrainian capital of kyiv, in honor of the country’s resistance to Russian invasion.

The black rhinoceros, which is an endangered species, was born on March 4 at the Dvur Kralove zoo, an unusual occurrence in the facilities, even though they are the ones with the most rhinos of the subspecies.

“The name is another sign of our support for Ukrainian heroes,” said Premysl Rabas, director of the zoo.

His mother, Eva, has taken care of him in the best possible way, the zoo said. The calf has gained 1 kilogram (2.20 pounds) a day. He currently weighs about 50 kilograms (110 pounds).

Hunting has reduced the number of free-living eastern black rhinos to about 800. The Czech zoo has 14.

Only three rhinos have been born in other zoos around the world in the last year.

A total of 47 eastern black rhinoceroses have been born in Dvur Kralove since the park welcomed the first in 1971.

Many of them are now in other zoos around the world, but nine have returned to Rwanda and Tanzania to live in the wild.
