Ajabu (born c. 2000) is a female southern white rhinoceros residing at the Birmingham Zoo. Her name is Swahili for "surprise."

She arrived at the zoo, along with her mother, Laptop, on November 4, 2008 from Fossil Rim Wildlife Center in Glen Rose, Texas. The two will be included in the zoo's Trails of Africa exhibit, currently under construction. They are also part of the Species Survival Plan, a program of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums to help conserve rhinos and other animals.
