Swedish zoo shares photos of adorable baby hippo

By Marjorie Sturgeon. CREATED Sep 5, 2014

Photos of a baby hippo released by the Swedish zoo where it lives are giving the world a collective reason to say “Awww.”

Olivia the hippo was born at the Parken Zoo on Aug. 2, but the zoo shared photos of the calf Wednesday.

The post (in Swedish, and translated with the help of Bing) says the dwarf hippo weighed just six kilograms at birth, but has since gained weight. (Log into Facebook below see more pictures.)
