There is a baby hippo stuck in the mud. Can you see it? Thankfully the kind people from the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Kenya did and helped get her out. The hippo, named Humpty, had been abandoned by her mother the day before she got stuck in the thick mud.
Humpty was sunburned, dehydrated, and could barely move when they found her. They may not look too threatening, but hippos have a reputation for being very dangerous. In the video, you will see that they were able to get Humpty out of the mud and clean her off!
A baby hippo weight about 100 pounds at birth! According to National Geographic, hippos will spend about 16 hours a day in the water.

They are graceful swimmers and can match a human’s speed on land (for short distances!). Sadly, the hippo populations are in decline. Share away, people.
