Disney World Finally Revealed the Name and Gender of Its Adorable New Baby Hippo
Fiona’s got competition!
It’s been a month since Walt Disney World welcomed its squishiest new attraction, an adorable baby Nile hippopotamus, and we finally have more information about the our favorite new hippo. Sorry Fiona!
According to the official Disney Parks Blog, the hefty youngster—the first hippo born at Animal Kingdom in more than 13 years—is a boy named Augustus. And weighing in at a sizeable 168lbs, Augustus is already bigger than an adult human at just five weeks old.

The gender/name reveal reportedly took place at the park’s Kilimanjaro Safaris attraction. Disney also released a video showing Augustus’ “playful and carefree spirit” in action, swimming, napping and exploring his habitat with his mom Tuma.
