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.

Getting by with a little help from Mom. Keep in mind that has the temperatures begin to fall it needs to be 45 degrees or warmer for the hippos to be outside

Fiona the Hippo and Mom
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!
Fiona thinks you’re cute too, but it’s what’s on the inside that really counts! Your DNA will ultimately decide if you are the one for our little diva . She’ll be with her mom for a while, so you have time to consider if you are willing to put up with her fame. Any potential mate would have to be thick skinned and okay with taking a back seat. Are you okay with paparazzi? Are you willing to move out of the way during photo shoots? Most importantly, are you willing to relocate to Cincinnati?

Avital Stark This has been the best thing on Facebook all year! I'm in the same county as Stoneman Douglas and it's been a very hard few weeks and my Facebook is inundated with posts from friends who were affected along with all of the political posts. This absolutely made my week and I'm going to show this to everyone I see to help put a smile on some S. Fl faces!! I've been watching Fiona since she was born and will continue to watch for any courtships.
