Screenshot_5ST. LOUIS, MO (KPLR) – A Rhinoceros Hornbill has hatched at the St. Louis Zoo. The animal has a large yellow beak and a small black feathery face. The bird was born on July 13th.

The chick’s mother didn’t stray from typical behavior when she sealed herself in a log with mud and fruit to incubate the egg. 30 days after the chick hatched the female broke out of the log and resealed the entrance. She and the daddy are now feeding the chick that is still inside the hollow log.
