In all the times I have gone to the zoo, this was the first time I have ever seen the pygmy hippo not in its swimming hole.

An endangered species with an estimated 3,000 surviving the the wild, they are found in the rivers and swamps in dense forests of Western Africa around Ivory Coast, Liberia, and Sierra Leone, and possibly Nigeria and Guinea. The smooth, hairless skin is black-brown to purple in colour, with the cheeks often tinted pink. A secretion of mucous keeps the hide moist and shiny.
