Fiona the hippopotamus celebrated her first birthday at the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Gardens on Wednesday, January 24, with a cake made of fruit. It followed a party held at the zoo on Saturday. She had the cake, bamboo decorations to snack on, and a mural of her zoo friends wishing her a happy birthday. Fiona was born six weeks early at just 29 pounds and couldn’t walk. The normal birth weight for a hippo is 55-120 pounds. She now weighs in at 650 pounds. Fiona’s fandom swelled on social media as people watched her grow and reach several milestones like taking her first steps and playing. Credit: Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Gardens via Storyful
