Satchmo, the baby rhino was named for famed jazz trumpeter Louis Armstrong, the little guy was born September 8, 2003, at the Audubon Zoo. The calf and his family are Southern white rhinos (Ceratotherium simum simum ). The species is declining in its native Africa due to poaching (rhinos are prized for their horns), human encroachment and habitat destruction. Only 12,000 or so remain in the wild, with about 160 in captivity. (UPI / A.J. Sisco)
