A hearty hip, hip, hooray for San Diego Zoo’s new baby hippo

A three-day-old river hippopotamus pokes its head out of the water under the watchful eye of its mother at the San Diego Zoo. The calf was born on Monday, March 23 to mother, Funani, and father, Otis, in the Zoo’s 150,000-gallon hippo pool. Animal care staff report the adorable newborn is nursing from its mother several times a day, a good sign that both mother and baby are doing well.
Funani is very protective of her baby and has kept her calf so close that animal keepers have not been able to determine yet if the calf is male or female. Hippo calves are estimated to weigh about 50 pounds at birth and they typically nurse for about eight months. The baby is likely to stay very close to Funani during the first several weeks. 
	Visitors to the San Diego Zoo can see Funani and her baby in the habitat on Hippo Trail.

By George E. Curry, NNPA Columnist No United States president has been more disrespected than Barack Obama – and his family.
