In the last week Zoo Miami has celebrated three wonderful and very significant births.
The first of which was a black rhino born on Sunday, May 25th. She is the 13th successful birth at Zoo Miami for this highly endangered species. She will remain off-exhibit with its mother for at least a week before being viewable for the public.
Then on Friday, May 30th the zoo welcomed a male white-faced saki monkey, the first birth of this species at Zoo Miami. This baby is currently being hand-raised by zoo staff, and will remain off-exhibit for at least the next several weeks.
Finally on Monday, June 2nd Zoo Miami celebrated the birth of a male Somali wild ass. These are the world's most critically endangered ass, with less than 1,000 believed to be left in the wild. He is expected to be on exhibit with his mom by the end of this week.
