CINCINNATI, Ohio — As temperatures continue to rise, people aren't the only ones enjoying the warm weather.

The Cincinnati Zoo shared an adorable video of Fiona the hippo and her mom enjoying some time with the hose.

Fiona the hippo made her claim to fame after surviving being born six weeks early at the low weight of 29 pounds.

The world-famous hippo has a very good relationship with her mother Bibi. Zookeepers have said that Bibi is a great mother and mentor to Fiona, teaching her the skills she needs to be a hippo while nurturing her at the same time.
