Rare pygmy hippopotamus birth

This is probably the cutest animal-baby since Knut. *awws* My sister is already planning to get one herself... *headdesk*







- “Monifa," a three-week-old baby pygmy hippopotamus, enjoys a warm bath in her enclosure at Sydney’s Taronga Zoo on Nov. 7, 2008. Monifa, meaning “I am lucky” in Nigerian, is the first pygmy hippopotamus birth at the zoo in 23 years and weighed in at 3.8 kilograms at birth on Oct. 15. - (THE ASSOCIATED PRESS & Toronto Sun)
