Zoo keepers in Kessingland are celebrating after the birth of a rare southern white rhino.

The calf  was born at Africa Alive in December – where they are hoping people will now help name the new arrival.

Keepers have confirmed that the white rhino calf, born to mum Nijiri and dad Zimba, is female – and they have picked out a list of possible names.

Suggested names include Jasiri – which means bold and courageous in Swahili… and other possible names on the list are:

🦏 Kamili – “Perfection” in Swahili
🦏 Hazina – “Good” in Swahili
🦏 Johari – “Jewel” in Swahili
🦏 Amara – “Grace” in Afrikaans
🦏 Zawadi – “Gift” in Swahili

The winning name will be announced on the 24th January.
