Zoos have really been bringing the cute, of late, with sites from Oregon to Texas to Sweden welcoming new additions to their scenery.
The adorable pygmy hippo named Olivia, pictured above, was born Aug. 2 at Parken Zoo in Sweden. The wrinkly little girl has drawn comparisons to the "Michelin Man" tire mascot, though she would doubtless prefer to be called by her given name, if she had any clue what a "Michelin Man" was.
Olivia came into the world weighing only 13 pounds and is "the cutest little fatty you could imagine," Parken Zoo zoologist Jennie Westander told the newspaper Aftonbladet.
Pygmy hippos are an endangered species, with estimates pegged at 3,000 or so remaining in the wild. They look like the "regular" hippopotamus we're all used to seeing, but the pygmy variation is only about half as tall at the shoulders (at just under 3 feet) and weighs (at 600 pounds) not even a quarter of the standard-issue hippo.
