    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.

      Like a Boss: Duck Shows Off Smooth Landing on Icy Pond

      Nature is amazing and this video just reiterates that! The clip shows a duck landing on the surface of an iced over pond. As the duck lands it begins to slide along in the direction of a flock of birds, to soften the landing and steady itself, the feisty fowl calmly sticks out one leg, easily averting disaster.

      Bamboozled! Golden Retriever Can't Find Treat

      Sometimes even such active and carefree dogs as Golden Retrievers have to calm down and think about serious matters. What is the meaning of life? Why are dogs and people so different?
