Mama hippo and baby hippo swimming together - cutest video ever...

Mama hippo and baby hippo swimming together - cutest video ever


A CHRISTMAS BONUS FROM THE GREEN PLANET...


Mama hippo and baby hippo swimmingIn case you missed it, last Friday, we published Mother hippo rescues a baby wildebeest in Kenya - African wildlife. Today we have yet more hippo love to share: a video of a mother hippo and baby hippo swimming together at the Bioparc Valencia, the smashing zoo in Valencia, Spain. I think it's safe to say we love hippos.

I filmed this myself with an HD Flip camera on my latest trip to Valencia, Spain. Having recently visited Zambia on a safari, I thought the African animals at the zoo might not impress me as much as usual. Boy, was I wrong.

Bioparc Valenica allows you to get so close to the animals -- and not because the enclosures are small (they're actually larger than most I've seen). Furthermore, it provides you with experiences you definitely wouldn't have on a safari, like watching hippos swim underwater right in front of you.
