Disney’s Animal Kingdom Celebrates Hippo Birth
Disney’s Animal Kingdom has announced the birth of a Nile hippopotamus, the first hippo born at the park in 13 years. The baby hippo was born at approximately 10 p.m. last night and is staying close to mom, Tuma.
The birth of the hippo marks a great success for Disney's Animal Kingdom as the Nile hippopotamus is a vulnerable species with a declining population and this birth helps to contribute to the worldwide conservation of the breed.
