The birth of a baby hippo named Obi (meaning heart in Nigerian Igbo language) in late May/early June at Melbourne Zoo in Victoria Australia was the first male calf born there since 1981. This video shows him splashing around in his first swim in the big pool. The pygmy hippo is an endangered species facing habitat loss and illegal poaching. Obi is expected to grow to only a quarter of the height and weight of a full-sized hippo.
