Hippo Enjoys 'Spa Day' at San Antonio Zoo

A hippo named Timothy at the San Antonio Zoo in Texas was treated to his own version of a spa day on May 31, according to the San Antonio Zoological Society which released video of Timothy looking serene as small fish swam around him.

“Timothy’s up early for his morning spa appointment!” the zoo tweeted alongside the clip.
