The Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden announced the launching of a video series on Facebook entitled “The Fiona Show” featuring its world-famous baby hippo.
The documentary-style video series will start on Tuesday, August 29, 2017 on the social network giant’s new Watch platform, which was introduced earlier this month.
“We are excited to work with Facebook as they launch Watch,” said Amy Labarbara, marketing coordinator at the Cincinnati Zoo and co-producer of The Fiona Show. She added that the zoo has been posting daily updates about baby hippo Fiona since she was born seven months ago.
The Cincinnati Zoo believes that baby hippo Fiona will become “an even bigger celebrity” after the release of the episode one of The Fiona Show.
The first episode included interviews with the coach of Team Fiona, who was on the scene minutes after the baby hippo was born. It also includes previously unreleased video of Fiona’s actual birth and the care team while helping the struggling baby hippo.
Baby hippo Fiona was born premature on January, weighed around 29 pounds or 13 kilograms, and was given 24-hour care.
With the help of her care team, the famous baby hippo surmounted health problems. Its current weight is more than 450 pounds.
Millions of people are already watching the video updates about baby hippo Fiona on Cincinnati Zoo’s Facebook page since its birth. The animal is definitely a celebrity. It was named an honorary deputy sheriff and a children’s book about her has been announced.
The Cincinnati Zoo said it will post new episode of The Fiona Show every Tuesday after its premiere on August 29.
