CINCINNATI, Ohio (WSYX/WTTE) -- In six months, Fiona has grown by leaps and bounds. Monday was just the latest example.

The baby hippo at the Cincinnati Zoo was showing off to her care team and visitors with her porpoising skills at her outdoor pool.

In the video, you can see her slowly propel toward the surface when she leaps above the water and comes splashing back down.

Fiona, who celebrated her half birthday on July 27, is also getting more comfortable with her parents, Bibi and Henry, as well as her surroundings.
