Everybody loves hippos.

I think this is the first time I’ve ever seen the pygmy hippos out of the water at Lowry Park Zoo in Tampa. The baby ¬†was born in October last year. It was a fairly cool morning in last March and the baby was moving around, rubbing his back on the tree trunk and checking everything out. I’m not sure if he was really eating the hay or just imitating Mom. A big crowd was forming and the kids were going crazy over the baby. It’s always fun to watch the kids react.
