Now, she is defying the odds; taking her first steps at Cincinnati Zoo over the weekend after she was born six weeks premature. And although she is not quite out of the woods yet, they have named her "Fiona" which means "fair".

The zoo is providing updates on its website.

The Cincinnati Zoo documented the adorable and monumental occasion of the tiny hippo walking for the first time.

She is kept close enough to her parents so they can hear and smell each other, the zoo said in an official statement.

Hudson's Bay making bid to take over retail giant Macy's, report says
For Hudson's Bay , which runs more than 480 stores around the world, buying Macy's would be a splashy way of expanding in the U.S. Starboard Value bought its Macy's stake in 2015 and from the start has pressed the company to spin off its real estate holdings.

"Fiona had another good night and drank more from her bottle this afternoon than she has to date".

Yesterday the hippo seemed tuckered out in a precious photo of Fiona napping on a zookeeper's chest. The zoo also reported on Facebook that the hippo is up to 37 lbs and has been eating more than she ever has before.

'Her premature lungs absorb Carbon dioxide when she holds her breath (dive reflex) and cause oxygen levels to dip'.

Fiona is a resident of Cincinnati Zoo and was born 6 weeks too early. The normal range is 55 to 120 pounds. The zoo said Saturday that Fiona is in stable condition.
