Three Baby Hippos Play at Zoo Hamburg (Tierpark Hagenbeck Hamburg)

Hamburg's Hungry, Hungry (Baby) Hippos Have Hairy Faces?!

I guess I've never seen a hippo that close up to compare, but look how hairy the face is! This happy family lives in Hamburg, Germany – the babies, born in November and January, were the first to join the zoo in a number of years. OK, so maybe I don't know if they're hungry but they certainly seem thirsty and to love playing in water . . . see pictures below for evidence of splashiness.

As weird as it sounds, I think grownup hippos are cuter than baby ones. I don't know why but they are. To me at least.
