CINCINNATI, Ohio (WSYX/WTTE) -- No matter how many toys we give our kids, they always end up playing with a box.

Apparently, the same holds true for Fiona as well.

The Cincinnati Zoo posted a video of the four-month-old hippo as she buried herself in a box.

Her care team said it's a way to provide the the calf with a variety of objects gives her the opportunity to use all of her senses. They added it's especially important to expose animals to a range of stimuli at a young age makes, because it makes them more comfortable when they encounter new things as adults.
