The 60-pound male calf was born August 26 to eight-year-old Kapuki, a first-time mom, and 27-year-old Maku.
The calf and mother are doing "wonderfully," said curator of mammals Mark Kamhout.
There are just 5,055 black rhinos living in the wild, making the species critically endangered. Rhinos are territorial and solitary creatures, meaning they only tolerate coming together for brief periods for breeding.
Zookeepers carefully studied Kapuki, analyzing her fecal samples to determine the best time to introduce her to Maku.
Now, after more than a year in gestation, the not-so-tiny tot is healthy and bonding with his mother. He'll be kept behind the scenes at the zoo for a few weeks, but will soon make his public debut.
In the meantime, enjoy watching the new rhino calf wobble around his new home.
