Petting Zoo: New Baby Hippo Debuts!

THE NEWEST ADDITION TO THE MEMPHIS ZOO MADE HER DEBUT LAST MONTH.
THIS BABY HIPPO WAS BORN ON MARCH 23RD --- WEIGHING 76-POUNDS.
ZOO CURATORS SAY THE LITTLE GIRL LIKES TO STAY CLOSE TO HER MOTHER.
YOU CAN SEE HER PRANCING AROUND AND GOING FOR A SWIM.
THE HIPPO DOESN'T HAVE A NAME JUST YET -- THE MEMPHIS ZOO IS HOLDING A CONTEST TO CHOOSE ONE.
PEOPLE WENT ON THE ZOO'S WEBSITE TO VOTE ON A NAME --- CHOOSING BETWEEN VENUS, CLEO, WINNIE, ZURI OR ASHA.
VOTING WILL ENDED THIS WEEK, AND THE ZOO WILL ANNOUNCE A WINNER SOON!
