Baby Hippo at the San Diego Zoo

There's a new baby hippo at the San Diego Zoo.  He (or she - they don't know yet) has been pretty hard to see so far, as Mom is doing a good job of protecting him (or her).  I did manage to get one shot the other day.

Just to help put this into perspective, since it's hard to tell just how little this one is right now, here is a shot of Funani, the mother, taken from the same spot with exactly the same magnification.
