Fiona the Hippo

Fiona the Hippo lives at the Cincinnati Zoo and has become an internet sensation upon arrival. Her story is the feel-good story of the year for Cincinnati. She was born six weeks pre-mature and became the smallest hippo to survive born in captivity. She currently lives in the Hippo Habitat at the zoo with her mom Bibi. Sadly, her father Henry passed away in October.

I finally got the chance to go and meet Fiona at the zoo last weekend and was not disappointed.  It was adorable to see children line up to see the hippos in the habitat and learn about one of the great animals from the African continent.

The zoo has also had a major financial boost from Fiona. Attendance is up 22% last year largely due to the interest to see Baby Fiona. Zoo fundraising is also way up as donors reach out from all over the world to help provide supplies to care for the zoo animals.
