Zoo Atlanta’s black rhino habitat is separated from the visitor side only by a stream-filled moat, allowing for close viewing. Both of Zoo Atlanta’s rhinos were born in captivity. Male Boma, whose name means “fortress” in Swahili, was born in the Czech Republic; female Rosetta Stone (Rosie) was born at the San Francisco Zoo. Congressman Newt Gingrich was instrumental in helping Zoo Atlanta acquire Boma and Rosie.
