ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — It’s a boy — a big boy. A 150-pound white rhinoceros was born at Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park in Florida over the weekend.

The as-yet-named rhino was born to Kendi, who was the first white rhinoceros born at the animal theme park back in 1999.

Disney officials say both mom and son are doing well under the care of their human keepers. In the upcoming weeks, the newborn rhino will be introduced to his crash  — or group of rhinos — on the theme park’s savanna.

Disney says it was the 11th white rhino born at Walt Disney World, and two more are on the way.
