One-month-old Fiona has outgrown two pools already! Now that her IV has been removed, vets have given her the okay to resume supervised pool time. Hippos don’t actually swim. They sink under water and walk along the bottom, propelling themselves up to the surface to breath. They are able to hold their breath for long periods. Spending time in the pool will help Fiona build muscle and lung strength, keep her skin moist and let her act like a hippo!
Her new pool, purchased with your donations, is set up close to mom and dad so she can hear and smell them.
