Cute Baby Pygmy Hippo Born In Chilean Zoo

This is the moment a baby Pygmy hippo follows its mum around the enclosure before enjoying its first bath in the pond - while other footage shows the moment the cute calf was born in the zoo.

The pygmy hippopotamus (Choeropsis liberiensis or Hexaprotodon liberiensis) was born at Buin Zoo in the central Chilean capital Santiago and is said to be the fourth successful birth at the animal park in less than eight years.

The calf, called Bernardina, is female and weighed 7.2 kilograms at birth.
