IndyZoo's new rhino calf has a name: Xola!

IndyZoo's rhino calf was born Feb. 11 and needs a name!

We asked for your help in naming our rhino calf, choosing from a list of names for this little cutie.

The one you picked was Xola! The name is Swahili for “stay in peace."

The female calf was born early on Super Bowl Sunday to 19-year-old mom Zenzele and is the first live-birth rhinoceros calf for the Indianapolis Zoo. She is Zenzele's seventh calf and over 300 pounds of cuteness and energy!
