Baby Hippo Fiona Explores Her Outdoor Pool for the First Time

The Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden in Ohio shared this adorable footage of their famous four-month-old baby hippopotamus, Fiona, going for her first swim in the deep waters of the zoo’s Hippo Cove outdoor habitat, after the zoo had closed for the day. In this short clip below, Fiona says hi to the zoo’s staff while sinking to the bottom of the pool like a rock.

“She is not yet ready for her public debut but is getting comfortable in the outdoor environment is a step in the right direction.”
