Monifa Takes a Bath

    Newer Older

    This is Monifa is a rare pygmy hippo born at Taronga Zoo in Sydney Australia. This is her being given a bath by her keeper Renee. In this photos she is close to 2 months old. And she has grown heaps since the last time I got this close to take her photograph. Check out this photo to see the difference

      Awwww! Gorgeous!

      Perhaps her mother came from Melb Zoo? We used to have a pygmy hippo until a year or so ago, and I know it went to Sydney

      Such a cute baby....Are the pygmy ones very tame when fully grown?
