By now, you're probably heard of Fiona, the baby hippo who was born six weeks early at the Cincinnati Zoo. Since she was premature, the experts at the Zoo have had to take special care of her to make sure she grows and develops as a normal hippo should. In the meantime, the internet has quickly fallen in love with Fiona and her extreme cuteness, especially since the Zoo frequently shares updates on her growth and progress on their social media accounts.
Who knew everything a baby hippo does could be so adorable?!
This week, Fiona made headlines once again when the Zoo shared a video of her walking on a new ramp for the first time. If you've been keeping tabs on her growth, you'll see that Fiona is not much of baby anymore-at 73 pounds with her trainers unable to lift her. She is now using the ramp to help her get in and out of the pool for her daily swims.
Prepare to saw "aww" as you watch Fiona go up her new device.
According to a blog post on the Zoo's website, Fiona's handlers hope to reunite Fiona with her parents in just a few weeks.
Keep on growing, Fiona!
