Baby Hippo Makes Splash at Prague Zoo

AP video captures the zoo's most adorable newcomer making his first public appearance

Prague Zoo welcomed one of its newest additions on January 28 when hippopotamus pair Slávek and Maruška gave birth to their third child, a baby boy.

The Zoo announced the birth last Friday and released a pair of pictures of the yet-to-be-named newcomer from photographer Petr Hamerník.

On Saturday, February 20, the new baby made his first public appearance, with press cameras on hand to capture the event.

AP video published today shows the little guy walking out with his parents and toppling over into the water:

Zoo visitors can now see the entire family at the new hippo pavilion.
