Watch This Baby Hippo Take Its First Swim

Share It



Summertime is always the perfect time to take a dip in the pool, no matter if you have two legs or four. The Melbourne Zoo in Australia recently posted an adorable video of Obi, a pygmy hippo who was born at the zoo in May, embracing some summertime fun and hopping into the water for the first time.

Obi wasted no time at all making a splash in the zoo's big pool and getting in his first swimming lesson from his mom, Petre. The little hippo happily swam around, popping in and out of the water. Obi is the first member of his species to be born at the zoo, and when full-grown, he'll weigh around 100lbs and stand less than two feet tall.

Make sure to watch the adorable video of Obi splashing around below.
