Fiona the Baby Hippo Has Water Fun at the Zoo (Video)

Published on Mar 15, 2017

Fiona’s parents, Bibi and Henry, both enjoy hose play, and it looks like it runs in the family. This was her first experience with this type of enrichment. The water was slightly cooler than it is in her pool but not chilled. Her care team has to pay attention to details like water temperatures because Fiona is not fully able to thermoregulate her own body.

The comments on youtube suggest that the world has fallen in love with Fiona. Let’s remember all the wildlife and keep them in our thoughts and prayers.

    • My understanding is that certain species of Hippos are endangered. I post animal stories and videos to promote affection for wildlife and domestic animals–dogs, cats, sheep, goats, cattle, even chickens.

      Thanks for letting me know that these animal posts are resonating with folks. I have a draft on April the giraffe, but that situation just keeps going on and on.
