Baby Hippo Fritz Playfully Chases Big Sister Fiona in Cincinnati Zoo

Fritz the baby hippo, who was just one month old, played with his big sister, the Cincinnati Zoo’s beloved Fiona, on Friday, September 2, according to the zoo.

Fritz quickly warmed up to his big sister after the pair’s first meeting. The care team noticed similarities between the sibling duo soon after Fritz was born.

Video posted by the Cincinnati Zoo, which they said was filmed on Friday, shows “Fiona getting chased by her baby brother and [mother] Bibi following closely behind” in the Ohio park. The zoo said that this was “one of the funniest moments in Hippo Cove history!” Credit: Cincinnati Zoo via Storyful
