US-ANIMAL-ZOO-HIPPO

 

The San Diego Zoo's newest hippo climbs on his mother's back on February, 10, 2011. The pair have been inseparable since the birth on January 26, 2011. That made it tough for San Diego Zoo keepers and veterinarians to determine the calf's sex, but they have finally confirmed the two-week-old is a boy. Zoo keepers gave the baby hippo the name Adhama which means honor or glory in Swahili.     AFP PHOTO/KEN BOHN/SAN DIEGO ZOO/HO
