AHHHH.

A rare black rhino was born last week at Des Moines' Blank Park Zoo. The female rhino—who is yet to be named—is just one of seven black rhinos born around the world this year.

The species is "critically endangered" according to the World Wildlife Fund's classifications, so the birth was met with great excitement. Plus, just look at her ears. Just. Look.
