    Fiona, the Nile hippo, was born at the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden 6 weeks earlier than expected. She was very weak and required 24-hour attention, but thanks to her care team, she is now strong and healthy! Watch this super cute hippopotamus calf splashing in her little exercise pool.

    The Cincinnati Zoo constantly posts updates on the hippo's health and activities, and now Fiona has a huge fan base in social media. The world was watching as she was taking her first steps and napping in her pool; and here's another adorable video of cheerful Fiona playing in a shower and falling asleep with the water running.
