Happy the Hippo is back!


The Hippo Haven exhibit at the Milwaukee County Zoo is now open for the 2021 season. It's been closed since November since hippos don't tolerate the cold very well.


You can see Happy float and swim around his 60,000 gallon watering hole from a large viewing area. (The other hippo, Patti prefers to stay in other parts of her habitat.)
