The Cincinnati Zoo released footage of “Fiona,” a hippo who was born prematurely and has been under the close supervision of the medical staff at the zoo, returned to her mother yesterday. The zoo released a touching video of the reunion.

Terrifying and tender:

The public has shown a steady interest in her development since Fiona’s birth. It’s not hard to see why — baby hippos are friggn’ cute. If you ever need to check out of the constant political mudslinging that permeates our society then head over the Zoo’s website and bask in the tranquility of watching a baby hippo toddle around a big pool along with many other fascinating animals.
