Premature Hippo Baby Getting 24 Hour Care – Cincinnati Zoo

The premature baby hippo born early yesterday morning, six weeks before her due date, remained stable overnight and is receiving around-the-clock intensive care from Zoo vets and animal care staff. Her mom, Bibi, is doing fine and, because of her experience standing still for ultrasounds, is allowing milk to be collected. Vets are adding mom’s milk to a fluid mixture that is being tube-fed to the baby. She is still too weak to stand but the nutrients she’s receiving should help her gain strength.

Premature Hippo Baby has First Pool Experience – Cincinnati Zoo

Our two-day-old baby hippo, born six week early, is hanging in there.  Her care team continues to give her 24-hour attention, which includes tube-feedings, vet checks and keeping her warm and moist.  She is gaining some strength.  This morning she got her first pool experience.  Most hippos are born in the water, but they can’t actually swim. Pool time will help her build muscles and balance and maintain an optimal body temperature of 96-98 degrees.
