It's Swimtime For Berlin's Baby Hippo!

It's Swimtime For Berlin's Baby Hippo!

Although it isn't Monifa (who's currently a close second in our cutest zoo baby of '08 poll), this equally adoro hippo is having some watery fun with mama, Kati, at the Berlin Zoo! Born less than a month ago on Nov. 29, it makes sense that the yet-unnamed babe can already swim since many hippopotamuses are born underwater with the mom pushing the lil one to the surface to breathe, and even nursing while in there.
