Rare baby pygmy hippo goes on display in Hampshire zoo

A rare pygmy hippo, born at a zoo in Hampshire, has been in public for the first time.

The newborn, who hasn't been named, yet stayed close to her proud mother Wendy.

She was born as part of a European conservation breeding programme.

There are fewer than 3,000 pygmy hippos in the wild, and that number is expected to decline by 20 percent in the next 20 years.
