While the Cincinnati Zoo's beloved baby hippo still isn't out and about for visitors to view, the zoo is hosting a special media-only preview Wednesday that will feature Fiona exploring her outside habitat and 9-foot-deep pool.

She weighed just 29 pounds when she was born, but has overcome ill health and now weighs more than 100 pounds.

Fiona's care team is introducing her to the outdoor habitat after hours and said the goal is to have the public be able to see her in the next couple of weeks.

The zoo reports Fiona is having positive interactions with her mother and father.

The gift basket included a baby book filled with details about Fiona's early days, a stuffed animal, a pacifier and four superhero capes signed by 200 staff members. "It brings us to tears sometimes".
