Fiona The Hippo Just Slipped And Fell Into Her Pool While Feasting On A Pumpkin

Cincinnati Zoo video/YouTube

Baby hippo Fiona was chowing on some pumpkin for Halloween when she lost her footing and slid into her pool—and the internet is lapping it up.


The Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden uploaded the video to YouTube on Oct 31, 2018.

Set to frolicsome spooky music, first mommy hippo, Bibi, bites into a jack-o'-lantern, busting it open in one chomp, before the nearly two-year-old Fiona (born prematurely in January 2017) totters over to munch on the remnants.

Fiona is enjoying the fall treat so much she gets just a little too close to the edge of the rocks and topples into the water.

The zoo captioned the video:

"Trip-or-Treat. Don't worry, the plump princess was just fine. Baby hippo Fiona slips into the water while devouring her Halloween Day pumpkin."
