The plump princess is up to 1,119 pounds! Grow Fi Grow!
Fiona’s tusks are looking more impressive but still have some growing to do! Hippos large tusks, which never stop growing, are not used for eating, but rather for fighting.

Premature Baby Hippo Fiona turns 2 on January 24th. She’s now over 1000 pounds and is living the life of a regular Hippo at the Cincinnati Zoo. Cincinnati’s favorite baby hippo will enter what her care team hopes will not be her “terrible twos” tomorrow! This is another major milestone for the preemie that almost didn’t make it, weighing a fifth of what a normal baby hippo would weigh when she was born on January 24, 2017. Here’s a look back at some of the most memorable moments of her first two years!
Happy Valentine’s Day! Fiona is here today because of the TLC she received from her care team. Here are some never-before-seen videos of moments they shared during Fiona’s first few months. A lot of love went into caring for Fiona and helping her become a healthy happy hippo!
Diane Wachtman-Munoz It makes me so sad that zoos like yours get a bad rap…if species aren’t preserved and studied they risk extinction…especially with the current POTUS backing trophy hunting. Where is the outrage for the real danger they face in the wild? Keep up the good work.
Cameo Elizabeth Paulsen I so wish i could work at some place like this i would even clean up poop and be very happy all i have ever wantrd to do is work with animals you guys do an amazing job with them.
Cynthia Harbin Holman Thank you so much for this video. No one who watches it can dispute that they are treated extraordinarily well. Y’all know them and they know and trust you so completely. Knowing and responding to their names…so smart and cooperative! I love seeing the science, training and nutrition being used to their benefit. And making it safe for them to play together via safe tusks . Sometime make an overnight activity behind-the-scenes please! I am interested in what the nocturnal animals like hippos get up to when their adoring fans are not around
Maggie Sealtiel Lovely to see them doing so well. However why are they prisoners to concrete & metal bars? As much love & care you give these amazing living beings, which is great, I can’t help feeling that this is imprisonment, surely a greener indoor living environment is healthier & happier for them. And this is why I never visit a place that keeps any live being in closed quarters for their personal benefits.
Michele Morris I’m just obsessed!!!! I’m a newcomer to the Fiona show since I recently stumbled across her. She’s exactly like the baby hippo that always showed up in my dreams for many years. (Maybe dream hippo baby will come back!) Thank you guys for your dedication, care, and love…. & for sharing them with us
