Chunky chunky hippo. Fiona is over 670 lbs!
Fiona spotted with one of her favorite foods: lettuce! While not considered endangered, hippo populations are currently declining due to habitat loss and degradation, increased incidence of drought, and some poaching.
Hippos vocalize on both land and in the water and are the only mammals that make amphibious calls. The weather is looking good for a potential Fiona spotting!
Take a look back at vet & animal care staff's fight to keep premature baby hippo Fiona alive with help from Cincinnati Children's.
