Thirsty Thirsty Hippo: Cincinnati Zoo Hippopotamus Catches Raindrops in Mouth

Fiona the hippo caught raindrops in her mouth at the Cincinnati Zoo in Ohio.

Footage released by the zoo on May 4 shows the hippo with her mouth open wide, her head tilted upwards to catch the rain.

“Not everyone is bummed out by a rainy day,” wrote the zoo on the Facebook post. “Fiona thinks of it has her own personal giant hose and will literally catch the raindrops for hours! She’s one-of-a-kind!” Credit: Cincinnati Zoo/Sue Meyer via Storyful
