This Gorgeous Little Hippo ‘Obi’ Learning To Swim Will Melt Your Heart

 

If you're a fan of baby animals, particularly hippos, you are going to adore seeing baby 'Obi' learning to swim! Obi, just three weeks old at the time when these photos and video were taken, was born at Melbourne Zoo in Australia. His species, the Pygmy hippo, is sadly endangered, although, no one knows exactly how many are left in the wild due to their dense rainforest habitat. Obi was given his name as it means 'heart' in Igbo, a Nigerian language. Take a look as the little cutie learns to swim, his mother Petre sticking close to his side!
