A naming committee at Tallinn Zoo has chosen to name the black rhinoceros calf born at the zoo earlier this summer Kibeta.

The female calf born to the black rhinoceroses Kibibi and Kigoma on June 3 has been named Kibeta, spokespeople for the zoo told BNS on Friday.

Kibeta was named after a location by the same name in Tanzania, near Lake Victoria.

An eight-member committee chose the name for her from among suggestions submitted by almost 1,700 visitors to the zoo. The criteria for the name included that it bear a connection to Africa and a connection to the parents' names as well as be internationally understandable.

After a pregnancy lasting 442 days, Kibibi gave birth to Kibeta at Tallinn Zoo on Saturday, June 3 at 3:09 p.m. Approximately one hour later, the calf, estimated to weigh approximately 40 kilograms at birth, was already walking.
