Rhino Bonding

Black rhino calf King shares a strong bond with first-time mom Kapuki—as is clearly apparent in this photo taken by Zoological Manager Laszlo Szilagyi.

Black rhinos Kapuki and King at Lincoln Park Zoo

Just shy of 8 months old, King now weighs more than 700 pounds! He eats solid foods but will continue to nurse for several more months.

Our spring weather has been erratic, but on warmer days King and Kapuki spend time in their outdoor yard at Regenstein African Journey.
