The Turgwe Hippo Trust are proud to announce the birth of this new calf to Relief hippo and young male Kuchek.
This is the first calf for both hippos. The calf is the 50th hippo baby born since 1990 when Karen Paolillo first began her behaviour study of these amazing animals. She formed the Turgwe Hippo Trust for their protection in October 1994. You can have a chance to name the baby, the sex is unknown at present.
The raffle will be drawn on 31st March and the winner not only names the baby but receives the calves adoption for one year.
