Fiona Update: 250 Pounds!

Baby hippo Fiona has reached the 250-pound mark, still a fraction of the 3,200 pounds her mother Bibi weighs, according to the Cincinnati Zoo. Of course, scarfing all of that formula and hay is easy when you’ve got a mouth like this:

    I want to play hippo games with Fiona.
