This Video of a Sweet Baby Hippo Getting a Bath Is All You Need to Round Out 2018

JACINTA BOWLER 25 DEC 2018

Back on 24 January 2017, Fiona the hippo was born 6 weeks early at the Cincinnati Zoo.

Nowadays she's a big, strong juvenile hippopotamus (Hippopotamus amphibius), but it took a lot of love and caring to get her there she's the smallest hippo born in captivity to ever survive.his Video of a Sweet Baby Hippo Getting a Bath Is All You Need to Round Out 2018

During her growing up process, the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden made a bunch of video, took lots of pictures, and shared Fiona's journey with the whole words on a dedicated Facebook page, 'The Fiona Show'.

Earlier this year, the team released a collage video of previously unseen footage of baby hippo Fiona getting a bath, pats, and snuggles with her human carers. It's the purest thing you ever will see.

5. Thankfully nature's animals pickup the slack for the rest of the world.

Love the interaction between the baby hippo and the zoo staff; very heartwarming!
Thanks for sharing Judi Lynn!
