Meet Monifa, the Pygmy Hippo!
A rare pygmy hippo has reached the ripe old age of three weeks and is thriving at the Taronga zoo in Sydney, Australia. Monifa, (which means “I am lucky”) was very weak when she was born, and could not stand or walk immediately, so she could not be fed by her mother. She has been painstakingly hand-raised by the keepers.
You will definitely want to see the videos and the rest of the pictures of this little creature!
