CINCINNATI, Ohio (WSYX/WTTE) -- Fiona, a hippo calf at the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden, has been healthy for weeks and her progress is showing in the pounds.

On Sunday, the zoo said Fiona reached 90 pounds. The seven-week-old born six weeks premature weighed only 27 pounds at birth.

Over the past month, she's grown into bigger pools for her exercise and physical activity regimen, started climbing in and out of them on her own, graduated to bigger bottles, and has been taken off supplemental oxygen.
