Hippos can only go outside if it’s at least 50 degrees with sunny skies. The zoo suggest checking the Zoo Today page on its website before visiting and too see all zoo updates.
The 9-month-old Fiona, who weighed 29 pounds when she was born six weeks premature, is the smallest hippopotamus ever to survive. Normal birth weight is between 50 and 110 pounds.
