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!
