Baby rhino at Oregon Zoo goes outside for first time

Feb. 8 (UPI) -- A baby rhino at the Oregon Zoo went outside for the first time, and officials revealed the calf is a boy.

The eastern black rhino calf, born Dec. 4, celebrated turning 2 months old during his first trip outside, accompanied by his mother, Jozi, the zoo announced.

The zoo said officials have not decided on a name for the "tiny tank" and they are accepting suggestions from the public.

Eastern black rhinos are critically endangered, and the calf's birth was welcomed as a crucial step in conservation for the Africa-native species.
