Great job, girls!!
They might be just going for the one to their right because it’s closer ??♀️
Kiwi fruit would be Fi favorite
Oh geez Fiona is getting big!
Whatever is closest for the win.
I'm gonna guess whichever they see first lol
absolutely fascinating to see their big mouths up close! truely mesmerizing…
These two are absolutely the cutest hippos I have ever seen!
it looks to me like they like everything
What a fun test. Are the hippos selecting the food based on sight or smell?
Is that Fiona?! Holy-moly, look at what you guys did! Can you still play with her? Probably not. Man, what an accomplishment. Cheers!
great video!!! both the hippos are awesome!
Like asking a human "What's your favourite food? A Sultana or a peanut. lol
I did find it interesting though because as far as I know there's not many plum or banana trees in (most) the areas they live…i know they get out of the water at night and graze, but Hippo's aren't really the type of animal that would eat out of trees and I don't think a few fruit trees down by the river would have fruit on them for very long.
So I'm guessing just smell and appearance?
I don’t think I love butternut squash
When Maggie was sick and not eating at the L.A. Zoo, I brought melons and papaya and threw them into the pool (whole). Otis, the bull immediately gobbled up melons but Maggie wouldn't eat even though they floated right in front of her snout. Then Bull Hippo nudged the papaya over to Maggie. When she realized what it was she grabbed it. This was all done surreptitiously. Keepers told me soon after, that she began to eat again.
