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.
While canines like to live in packs, our feline friends are often much more territorial and jealous, so they prefer solitude. When a stranger comes, cats are ready to hiss and attack – and it does not matter how big the intruder is.
Our canine friends are always ready to care for their offspring and protect them while the pups get bigger and stronger. But sometimes the little ones can be really annoying and even big doggos can get flustered when their kids misbehave.
Our canine friends are natural-born hunters: brave, fast, and strong – but even they need to learn certain skills. Big doggos are always ready to teach little puppers how to protect, how to attack – but most importantly, how to sneak up.
Everybody knows that animals, especially our canine friends, like riding in cars. But doggos are not the only pets that love the feeling of roaring wind and moving road - some cats are also happy to get in the car - some big cats!
