16 Hippity-Hoppity Awwdorable Hippos

Hippos are known for being one of the most confusing animals in the animal kingdom because one the one hand, hippos are so freakin' cute, and they are so adorably funny. On the other hand, they can take a bite out of your body as if you were made of butter. No joke, those chompers are ferocious.

Below, we have 15 pictures celebrating other facets of hippos! Some are babies. Some are babies with their mommas. Some are just single hippos walking around mingling (get it? singles looking to mingle? *sigh*). So long as we enjoy these hippos from afar, we can enjoy them safely and happily! And we can definitely appreciate just how adorable hippos can be!

Smooshy Sqooshy Baby Hippos (Appreciation Pics)

Here you have a collection of hippos- baby hippos. Why? Because why not? They're smooshy, sqooshy, funny, too dang adorable, and not nearly appreciated enough. 

You know us, we're the biggest animal lovers in the world, so we give love to every underappreciated animal cutie, and baby hippos are one of our favorite ones. 

You just don't expect them to be as cute as they are. They truly take you by surprise with their adorableness and make you feel like such a hippocrite for not considering how cute they are before now.

Baby Hippos Deliver Happos (12 Gifs)

Happos, the hippo version of happiness. Yes, we just made it up, and no, we aren't particularly proud of it. 

Hippos! Also known as possibly nature's most adorable murder machines. That's right. According to BBC, an estimated 500 people per year are killed by this giant and angry blob. They are known to be aggressive and very dangerous. But as we watch vids or look at pictures of baby hippos, they look so derpy and adorable, we can't help but melt. 

If we ever do come across a hippo in the wild, we will be cautious. Until then, we can admire these cute (but deadly) animals from afar.

Foster Kittens Meet Animals At The San Antonio Zoo

During the past few months, we've seen a variety of animals wandering about an aquarium and learning about the creatures of the sea! Now, it's time for the land version -- a Zoo!

And two little kittens were able to come face to face with their much larger cat family. It wasn't just tiny kittens that went on this incredible field trip! Two foster pups were invited, too! 

What is the purpose of bringing foster pets to the zoo, you might ask? It's all to raise awareness for animal adoption! The animal shelter that brought in the animals to the San Antonio Zoo is Animal Defense League of Texas

Whoever said that hippos can't be graceful? Seems like Disney had it right in Disney's Fantasia! Those hippos can absolutely move with the grace of a ballerina! 

Turns out, hippos can do whale jumps too! Watch Hippo Fiona go crazy in their outdoor pool and celebrate with some joyful jumps. 

It totally makes sense now that whales are the closest living relative to hippos. You'll see.

Pygmy hippos are an endangered species, there are approximately fewer than 2,500 of them currently living in the wild. 

And now, the San Diego Zoo has revealed the exciting news that the latest addition of the beautiful species is a male pygmy hippo! The hippo has had a successful birth and is the first of its kind in over 30 years!

His mother, a 4-year-old pygmy hippo named Mabel, is a first-time mother and is doing well after giving birth to her 12.4-pound calf. 

"Mom and calf are doing very well, they said – and the calf is nursing and getting lots of attention from the first-time mother," San Diego Zoo Global said in a statement.

Congrats, Mama Mabel!
