The new baby Pygmy Hippo's name is....

I'm just going to jump right into it, the moment you've been waiting for...the Pygmy Hippo's name is

HOLLY BERRY!

Such a cute and perfect name for the sweet baby hippo that was born before Christmas
to Tampa's Lowry Park Zoo The Pygmy Hippo is rare and endangered (with less than 40 pygmy hippos in the program), so this has been very exciting for the zoo! Holly Berry currently weighs in at 35 lbs and is adorable!


My girls and I were invited to attend the zoo and their Name Reveal Party yesterday.  We had fun counting down and finding out the winning name.  Lowry Park Zoo held a social media contest to help pick the name, so it's been fun all around leading up to this event.  We even enjoyed Honeydew melon popsicles from The Hyppo Gourmet Ice Pops afterwards, which were flavored after mama hippo's (Zsa Zsa) favorite food, melons!

Right now, you can see Holly Berry in her habitat in Ituri Forest located in Safari Africa at Tampa's Lowry Park Zoo. The Zoo also just launched three special offers for guests to see Holly Berry including offers for active military, first responders and Florida residents.

Here are some more photos and a video from the party and the rest of our trip at the zoo!
