Mama hippo and baby hippo swimming together - cutest video ever
I filmed this myself with an HD Flip camera on my latest trip to Valencia, Spain. Having recently visited Zambia on a safari, I thought the African animals at the zoo might not impress me as much as usual. Boy, was I wrong.
Bioparc Valenica allows you to get so close to the animals -- and not because the enclosures are small (they're actually larger than most I've seen). Furthermore, it provides you with experiences you definitely wouldn't have on a safari, like watching hippos swim underwater right in front of you.
The mother hippo has the most wonderful face, and every time I see that little hippo's feet, my heart melts into jelly. I hope yours does, too.
