Prepare yourself — your heart is about to be melted by a tiny hippo
Obi is Melbourne Zoo‘s newest baby pygmy hippo. He recently got to go for his first real swim with his mom Petre and the little hippo is a total natural. Even though the water is still a little scary, Obi is quickly getting the hang of it.
According to the zoo’s video description, the name Obi means “heart” in the Nigerian Igbo language.
Bonus: He can wiggle his tiny ears, and it’s pretty much the most squee-inducing thing you’ve ever seen.
