CINCINNATI, Ohio (WSYX/WTTE) -- Fiona continues to pack on the pounds and on Tuesday, she showed why.

The Cincinnati Zoo released a video of five-month-old baby hippo during one of her four daily feedings. The bottles of formula add up to 487 ounces or just a bit shy of four gallons.

Her care takers said they offer her hay and grain, but she still prefers the formula, which is normal. They said hippos wean around eight months.
