Hip hippo hooray!

Hip hippo hooray!

Taronga Zoo’s baby pygmy hippopotamus – the first born in seven years – made its first public appearance in Sydney on Friday (March 17, 2017).

The female calf was born to first-time parents Fergus and Kambiri in February.

Pygmy hippopotamuses are classified as endangered, with fewer than 3000 left in the wild.

Taronga Zoo will soon hold a competition to help choose a name for the calf.
