    Hippopotamus

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Happy the Nile hippopotamus lives in the elephant House along with the zoo's Asian Elephant family, a pygmy hippopotamus, and capybara. The zoo's pygmy hippos are descended from a famous pygmy hippo named Billy, who was a pet of president Calvin Coolidge. Rhinoceros and Giraffe were once kept in this building, but the zoo moved them to another zoo to make room for its baby male Asian elephant, Kandula. On June 22, 2006, the zoo announced plans for a new $60 million state-of-the-art Asian elephant exhibit, called "Elephant Trails."
