Latest Update Fiona the Hippo at the Cincinnati Zoo 2019

Fiona and Bibi enjoying the sunshine today. Fiona weighed in at 1,078 pounds this morning.

Bibi soaking up the sun…hears Fiona entering pool… “She’s behind me, right? Maybe if I stay still she won’t see me…”

That rock looks like it was made for Bibi. Fiona still looks little compared to her mom. I’m so glad she’s still a toddler. They just grow so quick

Fiona definitely knows how to smile

I am so impressed with this happy little girl. Her care team has been awesome. That's why she is always smiling. She knows how much she is loved.

Full-term hippos usually weigh between 50-110lbs. Fiona only weighed 29lbs when she was born 6 weeks premature. 

 

We see you, Fiona! Hippos eyes, nose, and ears are located on the top of their head, which means they can see and breathe while still submerged in the water. Hippos can close their nostrils and ears to prevent water from entering. This is why hippo calves can suckle on land or underwater.

 Cincinnati Zoo should be very proud of all the loving hard work and dedication to helping this not so little anymore hippo with the can do attitude survive and thrive. I saw her and her mom sunning themselves yesterday.
