Take a look at the San Diego Zoo’s newest cover girl. Devi is a 5-month-old hippo. Zoo officials say she explored the San Diego pool for the first time on Tuesday.
You can see Devi doing barrel rolls, tossing her head, and pressing her nose against the glass. Officials say the active movements are part of devi’s defense training by her 3,500-pound mom Funani.
Devi will continue to nurse for up to a year. She’s already picking up food scraps left by her mother.
