Young Rhino Moves From Great Plains Zoo

December 6, 2012, 2:43 PM

Young Rhino Moves From Great Plains Zoo
October 2010

SIOUX FALLS, SD -

A two-year-old Eastern Black Rhino born at the Great Plains Zoo in Sioux Falls is now living in Iowa.

Kiano has moved to the Black Park Zoo in Des Moines, where zoo officials hope he will start his own family.  He will be introduced to a new mate, who could be the mother of his children. 

His relocation is said to be an important part of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums' (AZA) flagship conservation program, the "Species Survival Plan."

Kiano was born in October 2010.   He is the second calf born to the Zoo's rhinos, Jubba and Imara.  His seven-year-old sister now lives at the Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago. 

His parents are still in Sioux Falls and the zoo says his departure means they may have another opportunity to breed.
