Last month we got the great news of a new Baby Hippo born in Disney’s Animal Kingdom, the first in 13 years. Now Disney has given us a look at a video of the new Baby Hippo in action in the park, and boy is he cute! Oh yeah, by the way, his name is Augustus as if you couldn’t tell from the photo below!
Little Augustus is now a whopping 168 pounds!! Think about that as he was just born over a month ago! It’s good to know he has a playful spirit and stays close to his mom Tuma.
This guy is really stinking cute:
Be sure to check out the new baby hippo the next time you’re at the Animal Kingdom on the Kilimanjaro Safaris, there with his mother Tuma.
This is just the latest new member of the Animal Kingdom family, over the summer some new tiger cubs were born, and you can now go and see Anala and Jeda on the Maharajah Jungle Trek!
I want to know what you think about the video of the new Baby Hippo in Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Have you seen him yet on Kilimanjaro Safaris? Let us know in the comments section below!
If you enjoyed this article, as always I appreciate it if you’d share it with others via social media. I work hard at making this website into a useful resource for you and your family to plan your visit to Walt Disney World, and I hope it can help you! Thanks 🙂
