YouTube Tuesday – Baby Hippo Fiona

No matter where you live, I’m sure you’ve heard of baby Fiona by now. I hear a whole lot about her since I live in Cincinnati.

She was born in the Cincinnati Zoo 6 months ago and she was premature. They didn’t think she was going to survive, but she pulled through and she’s doing just fine now.

She’s a cutie, definitely an awesome animal, and the city has rallied around her in ways that are almost disgusting. There’s a local T-Shirt shop selling Fiona Tees, there’s a local ice cream maker that just made an ice cream flavor in her honor, yada yada. Regardless, it’s good to see she pulled through, and I hope her the best, even when she gets older and craves human flesh.

I would fill you in on more of her story, but the cheesy song that plays during this video will tell you everything you need to know, in a folksy sort of way.

    I love her, but to be honest, I only know her from the news links you share. She’s PRECIOUS.
