What's even cuter than a lil' pygmy hippo? How about a pygmy hippo who loves to be fed with a "Madagascar" movie hand puppet?
The Daily Mail has the story:
Zoo keepers at the private zoo near Chipping Norton in Oxfordshire said they had been 'trying everything' to tempt the fussy eater back to his meals when they stumbled across the hippo glove puppet in a supermarket promotion.
Now keepers don the puppet to hand feed the diminutive hippo, a relative of the larger hippopotamus on whom Gloria is based, his favourite carrot treats.
