On Monday night, a calf Southern White Rhino was born, and it's a boy. 

The Fresno Chaffee Zoo welcomed a rhino calf Monday night, and announced it to everyone one Facebook Tuesday morning. 

According to their Facebook post, "Fresno Chaffee Zoo is overjoyed to announce that Southern white rhino, Kayla, gave birth to a healthy, male calf overnight! Both rhinos are doing well behind-the-scenes. Weather permitting, and at zookeeper discretion, they will be on exhibit soon!"

They announced her pregnancy January 17th, and all are excited to welcome their new rhino.

Congratulations to all!
