Fiona the Rescued Baby Hippopotamus Happily Opens Wide for a Quick Dental Checkup

Fiona Baby Hippo Dental Check

Fiona the adorable, happy and healthy hippopotamus who was prematurely born in January at the Cincinnati Zoo, opened wide for a quick dental check on her incoming teeth and tusks.

Fiona has some new incisor tusks peeking through on top and also some lower dental development. She enjoys the dental check and mouth massage, so it’s easy for care staff to assess growth.
