Christmas is almost here, and we aren’t the only ones who are getting in on all the holiday fun! Fiona, our favorite baby hippo, has a video that will surely get you animal-lovers in the holiday spirit! The Cincinnati Zoo, where Fiona resides, uploaded an adorable holiday post.

Baby Fiona went through a lot of challenges as a young baby. Zoo caretakers carefully monitored and looked after her, while also meticulously documenting her progress. She was eventually reunited with her parents after growing stronger. Since then she has been enjoying herself and her popularity.

Check out this Christmas tune by Gayla Peevey titled “I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas.” The video is too cute for words, and the song will most definitely get stuck in your head!

As the song cheers, “Only a Hippopotamus will do!” Happy ‘hippo’ Holidays!
