Baby Hippo Sees Ma and Pa

SOMEONE THAT’S STOLEN OUR HEARTS IS FIONA, THE CINCINNATI ZOO’S NEWEST AMPHIBIOUS ADDITION.

THE ZOO RECENTLY POSTED AN UPDATE ON EVERYONE’S FAVORITE BABY HIPPOPOTAMUS – AND IT WAS NOTHING BUT GOOD NEWS! THE HIPPO, WHO WAS BORN PREMATURE, IS NOW WEIGHING IN AT A HEARTY 116 POUNDS. ADULT NILE HIPPOS WEIGH AN AVERAGE OF THREE THOUSAND FIVE HUNDRED POUNDS!

THE ZOO ALSO POSTED THIS SNAP OF FIONA SCOPING OUT HER PARENTS IN THEIR OUTDOOR HABITAT FOR THE FIRST TIME. FIONA HAS BEEN RAISED BY HUMAN CAREGIVERS SINCE SHE WAS BORN, AND ISN’T QUITE READY TO VENTURE OUTSIDE TO MEET HER PARENTS, BUT SHE IS GETTING FAMILIAR WITH THE LOOK AND SMELL OF THE GREAT OUTDOORS AT THE CINCINNATI ZOO.
