Cleveland Metroparks Zoo names baby rhino
COLUMBUS, Ohio —
Move over Fiona, there's a new baby animal in Ohio.
A one-month-old baby rhino in Cleveland needed a name. That's why Cleveland Metroparks Zoo held a contest to name the one-month-old rhino, and the winning name is... Lulu!
The zoo announced the meaning behind the name on Wednesday:
The winning name, which means “gem,” was selected after receiving the largest donation of $1,203. Donations for the naming contest totaled $2,620, which will directly support our efforts to reduce poaching and illegal wildlife trade.
Lulu is a female Eastern black rhino. She was born last month, on February 7, 2018, to her mom, Kibibbi.
The zoo is offering behind-the-scenes updates on Lulu on their official website.
