CLEVELAND -- The Cleveland Zoo debuted its baby black eastern rhino, Lulu, who was born in February. Lulu is the zoo's sixth eastern black rhino, though another is expected to arrive this fall.

The zoo held a contest in which donors could vote on a name for the calf. Lulu, which means "gem," was picked after the zoo received a $1,203 donation.

Eastern black rhinos are considered critically endangered as less than 750 remain in the wild, according to the zoo.
