A new little Hippo-kid in Copenhagen

 one hour ago

See video from Copenhagen Zoo, first time out in public, the little hippo is 1 month old.
Cute Hippo-kid

There is a better video on youtube of the hippo under water but it is not available for use here on the blog.

Hej Haverose! Hvor er du altså heldig at du bor i nærheden. Den er simpelthen så sød. Nu er jeg spændt på om de finder på et godt navn!
God fornøjelse!
Mange hilsner

Oh, what a sweet face, and a beautiful video. Thank you, Grethe, for reminding me of all the amazing animals there are in the world, just fascinating!

Thyra said...

Hej Teresa! Yes, isn't it just sweet. Such a little thick one.

Did you see the big hippo with those frightening teeth? I've heard that the hippo is the most dangerous animal in Africa.

A hippo bites you in two pieces in one bite, but don't worry, he's a vegetarian.....

Cute baby, I always like to see the new arrivals when I go to our zoo.

Thyra said...

Hello Steve, we've got no zoo here in Århus. There are some animal parks in Jutland, but I haven't been there. I'm super allergic.

Have a nice week-end!

Now that is a cute baby. Hope you've been well!

Thyra said...

Hej Maracas, yes it's really cute - as long as it's a baby!! That goes for some humans too!

Thank you for good wishes. I have just blamed myself that I'm not on the top this winter. Have begun taking some vitamins.

I have been following your blog but I have been a slow "commenter". I feel many bloggers have moved over to twitter and face book etc.

Now I know that all baby animals are naturally cute! Who would've guessed that a baby Hippo would be so pleasing? A very nice post!

Thyra said...

Hej Bill, even a tiny little crocodile, but not a snake!! Maybe it's because it might be poisonous?
