A hippopotamus has been born at the Dvůr Králové zoo in East Bohemia for the first time in 29 years, officials have announced. The animal was born last Wednesday to a seven-year-old female that arrived there in 2016.
The father was a hippo from a zoo in Germany’s Stuttgart. Another baby hippo is due at the zoo in the coming weeks as part of a revived breeding programme.
