Huyie 10" Hippo from Aurora
Hippo babies are born under water and usually weigh between 60 and 110 lbs. They are weaned after about a year. Hippopotami spend most of their days in rivers, lakes, and mudflats to keep cool in the hot African sun. They go on land at dusk to snack on grasses and other plant life.
Huyie is a baby Hippo with fuzzy feet, brown eyes, and a bumpy back. Measuring 10 inches long with very soft gray fur covering his body, he makes for a wonderful nap-time pal!
