Join us in celebrating National Hippo Day! From 10:00am to 3:00pm you can drop by our Pygmy Hippopotamus Habitat and meet our adorable pygmy hippo family including dad Harvey (25), mom Kindia (13), and baby Penelope (18 months). Also, join us for special meet-the-keeper talks and enrichment presentations at 11:00am and 1:00pm. Guests will learn how deforestation is affecting the hippo populations and how, if more is not done, they are on their way to being considered critically endangered.
PLUS, snap a photo with our special InstaZoo frame for your chance to win an up-close encounter with Penelope and Kindia!
