Den fire dage gamle flodhesteunge fik i dag besøg af dyrlægen. Selvom ungen er lille, vejer den ca. 50 kg og er både stærk og glat. Dyrepasseren måtte derfor have alle kræfter i brug for at holde ungen, mens den fik indsat chip, klippet en stump navlestreng og blev kønsbestemt.

The four-day old hippo calf in Copenhagen Zoo got a visit from the vet today. Although the calf is small, it weighs about 50 kg and it is both strong and slippery. Therefore the zookeeper had to use all of his strength to keep the calf still while the vet inserted a chip, cut the rest of cord and determined the sex.
