Om nom Mom
wow what alittle guy, he is cute.
Just her head is bigger than she is. I wonder if she even feels that nip – must seem like a mosquito bite.
Happy happy hippo!
MMMMWWWAAAHHH! Love this photo.
Hah, I wonder if that’s what I look like when I’m ear-nommin’
also comes in swiss-video flavor:
“Das happy Hippo im Zoo Basel ” Happy hippo! The video is too moishe, with his submersion, ear flicking and general blorby-ness.
Hippo hickey! LOL
What a happy hippo face!!
PS. Is that umbilical cord I see?
Little hiptopoptomus, as one of my former students used to call them.
Foot in Mommy’s eye: a classic baby manoeuvre.
I was wondering the same thing. I think it may be.
Perfect house hippo size.
My German is pretty rudimentary, but good enough to know that this is a newborn (so that likely is an umbilical cord), and that the parents (Helvetia – which is the official name of Switzerland, too – and William) have had ten babies together, and have lived at the Basel zoo since 1992.
But the coolest thing is the German word for hippopotamus, which I hadn’t known before: flusspferd. Something about that word is just so, so, so _German_!
Uhhh…excuse me little one. What you’re looking for is at the other end of your Momma.
Need to add the “blorp” tag to this one!
Flusspferd means riverhorse
C’est trop mignon !
I’m trying to learn German, so I had to look up Fluss. Pferd is horse. And if the Google is correct, fluss is either river or water, so it’s water/river horse. Neat!
