THE first hippopotamus to be born at Dublin Zoo in a decade is starting to find her sea legs just days after her proud mother Heidi gave birth.
The female calf, weighing 30kg, is the third "zoo baby" to be born this autumn. Two red pandas were born in August. But the little bears have been hard to spot until now as their mother kept moving them to hiding places to protect them.
