Welcome rhino

The Oregon Zoo has welcomed a new female black rhino, 9-year-old Jozi from the Milwaukee County Zoo. She joins King in the zoo's Rhino Ridge — eventually, as keepers want to make sure they get along.

"Jozi's been settling in well behind the scenes and enjoying some rhinoceros spa time," said Michelle Schireman, senior keeper in the zoo's Africa area. "She likes facials and loves warm showers."

Jozi weighs about 2,400 pounds.

New exhibit

Make plans for the upcoming exhibit "Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera, and Mexican Modernism" from the Jacques and Natasha Gelman Collection, Feb. 19-June 5, 2022 at Portland Art Museum. Tickets are now on sale.
